Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic site awarded the album 4 stars with the review by Scott Yanow stating, "At this point, Jordan did not quite have the distinctive sound that he would develop in his period with Charles Mingus, but he was already a strong hard bop stylist... It's an excellent straight-ahead outing"[2]
