Professional ratings

Source Rating
Allmusic 3/5 stars[1]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album three stars and said that "...Horn does not play piano at all, sticking exclusively to vocals, and she had less control over the interpretations (being persuaded to sing some songs at faster-than-usual tempos) than she would later on...although the overall music is enjoyable, Horn would have much preferred to be the pianist behind her own vocals". [1]
