Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Jeff Tamarkin awarded the album 4 stars, stating, "Holland uses those pieces, in particular, as launching pads for dynamic solo exhibits and inspired duets, but in the end it's not the dexterity of the individuals that impresses most, but rather the groupthink of the ensemble. ".[1]
