Allmusic 3/5 stars[2]

Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars with Scott Yanow stating "Recorded just three months before his unexpected death, this set by altoist Ernie Henry is his definitive album as a leader... Superior modern mainstream music, but there should have been much more from the potentially significant Ernie Henry".[2]
