Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic site awarded the album 4 stars with the review by Scott Yanow stating, "performed before an invited and enthusiastic studio audience, who provided atmosphere. Babs Gonzales introduces several of the numbers, but proves to be an unnecessary presence. However, Griffin in particular plays quite well in this loose straight-ahead setting"[2]
