The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4½ stars, stating, "All of the brilliant players have their opportunities to make strong contributions to Murray's five originals (best known of which is "3-D Family"), and the leader's writing is consistently colorful and unpredictable. Recommended.".
