Professional ratings
Review scores
Down Beat2.5/5 stars[2]
Allmusic3/5 stars[3]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars stating "The leader, Sonny Red Kyner (alto), never really became the individual strong player that his playing hinted he might develop into. Basically he was in the Charlie Parker-Jackie McLean tradition, and the material here had that spirit, but little punch".[3]
