Professional ratings
Review scores
Allmusic4/5 stars[4]

Scott Yanow of Allmusic states, "Hamilton is matched in a sextet with flugelhornist Clark Terry, trombonist Britt Woodman, pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Wendell Marshall and drummer Mel Lewis for a set of mostly blues. Terry and Woodman are quite exuberant throughout".[4] All About Jazz called it "a very strong album, and it has a home-run swing".[5]
