The Penguin Guide to Jazz states "The group as a whole is very strong and while there may be quibbles about the sound quality ... there are none whatsoever about the music".[2] In his review for AllMusic, Ron Wynn stated "neither Adderley nor pianist Larry Willis, who supplied half the date's songs, were in top form. Willis played some nice melodies but did not offer much during his solos, while Adderley was plagued by sloppy articulation. However, the work of Fortune, who has not recorded nearly often enough, salvages things somewhat".[3]
