Allmusic4/5 stars[3]

The Allmusic review by Ken Dryden stated: "While the original album title may be a sign of the record label getting carried away, trombonist Eddie Bert is a strong bebop trombonist like J.J. Johnson. On this session he's joined by the always superb pianist Hank Jones, plus Wendell Marshall and Kenny Clarke. ... Bert's been more active as a sideman than a leader since the '50s, so this is one album that his fans need to acquire". [3]
