Critical reception[edit]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars stating "This is essentially a crossover album, and while it is dated, it is still enjoyable in spots... At this point, the potential audience for this album will consist more of crate-digging rare groove enthusiasts than straight-ahead jazz fans".[1]
