Reception[edit]

In his Down Beat magazine review of March 14, 1963 jazz critic Don DeMichael wrote that "Dizzy plays marvelously on this record... There's a spirit evident that is all too often missing from today's record sessions – a spirit of vivacious humor and playing-for-the-hell-of-it."[1]

The Allmusic review states "this was one of Dizzy Gillespie's finest sessions of the 1960s... Highly recommended".[2]
