Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
SourceRating
Allmusic3/5 stars[3]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars with its review by Scott Yanow stating, "By playing bop-oriented music in 1968, Charles McPherson could have been considered behind the times, but he was never a fad chaser and he has long had a timeless style. This music still sounds viable and creative decades later".[3]
