Allmusic3/5 stars[4]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow stated "The music is taken from three different sessions, with this version of "Jumpin' at the Woodside" splicing together the best of two completely different performances. The lineup of top players gives one a good idea as to the high quality of the music".[4]
