Reception[edit]

Allmusic awarded the album 1½ stars with its review by Scott Yanow stating, "While Ammons sounds fine (his tone was never to be denied), the dated arrangements and unimaginative playing by the rhythm section (what is Roland Hanna doing on electric piano?) largely sink this effort".[1]
