Professional ratings
Review scores
Allmusic4/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4 stars and stated "it's a bit frustrating to hear the songs in truncated form, but since that's the only way they exist, fans should cherish what we do have. And this is music to cherish. Green's Blue Note recordings are consistently fun, and this is no exception. Each song swings with energy, offering each instrumentalist a chance to shine... the music is as appealing today as when it was recorded".[2]
