The Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos awarded the album 5 stars, stating, "For saxophonist/flutist David Liebman, the collective septet Lookout Farm earmarked him as an emergent band leader and conceptualist, not to mention top-of-the-heap unabashed improviser, especially on the soprano... Lookout Farm's sheer democracy in motion, for progressive modern jazz in a fusion era, defined how far artistically a group could go while retaining a distinct identity... This one-of-a-kind band and recording set a high-water mark for far too few bands, even unto itself, to follow. This is worth searching for and savoring".
Lookout Farm is a new quartet. This is our first album; with the help of friends. The compositions are dedicated to people or experiences I've had. "Pablo's Story" for P. Picasso (with "Andalucia" for Mom); "Sam's Float" is for a water dance; "M.D." for Miles; "Lookout Farm" was where I met Eugene Gregan. - Dave Leibman
