On Jazz Views, Jack Kenny wrote: "[A]lthough Rollins only plays on half of the tracks the CD is well worth hearing because he is at his best and at times his sardonic side almost sounds as though he wanted to prick the pretensions of the MJQ. There was never much humour with the MJQ but there is plenty of musical fun with Rollins. Yes, the CD is a mish-mash but if you don’t have the Rollins tracks they are well worth acquiring. I am sure the Teddy Edwards’ groupies will be pleased with the final two tracks."[8]
