Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[4]

The Allmusic review stated "Pianist Ray Bryant's debut for Columbia was named after "Little Susie," a hit single he had a short time earlier recorded for Signature. The trio LP with bassist Tommy Bryant and either Gus Johnson or Eddie Locke on drums has a remake of "Little Susie," a few other originals that did not catch on as hits".[4]
