Allmusic5/5 stars[1]

Allmusic awarded the album 5 stars with its review by Scott Yanow stating "Ben Webster's final American recording was one of his greatest. At 55, the tenor saxophonist was still very much in his prime but considered out of style in the U.S. He would soon permanently move to Europe where he was better appreciated".[1]
