The Penguin Guide to Jazz 3/4 stars[2]
Allmusic 3/5 stars[3]

The Penguin Guide to Jazz states "Jones comping is inch-perfect throughout and Clarke is right on the case, often following Adderley outside the basic count for a phrase or two".[2] The Allmusic review stated "His pithy, pungent trumpet and cornet work is effective in a hard bop context, although his own work outside his brother's group has never seemed quite as effective".[3]
