Reception[edit]

Professional ratings

AllMusic4/5 stars[3]

The AllMusic review by Scott Yanow said "A fine hard bop tenor saxophonist, Craig Handy performs four of his originals, four by drummer Ali Jackson, and Charles Mingus' "Eclipse." ... The leader plays some particularly rewarding soprano and his program is well-paced with plenty of variety, swinging in a modern fashion with just enough unpredictability to keep one guessing".[3] On All About Jazz, Robert Dugan stated "Handy is fully in charge of an excellent quartet ... the bulk of Reflections In Change showcases Handy's capacious blowing, and he sounds relaxed, unfettered and elated"[4]
