Allmusic4.5/5 stars[3]

The Allmusic review by Steve Huey awarded the album 4½ stars and stated "With just a basic organ trio lineup, the album works a fascinating middle ground between the soul-jazz of Green's early days and the modal flavor of his most recent work... It all makes for a terrific album that ranks in Green's uppermost echelon".[3]
