Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars[3]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars and stated "this recording must have surprised most jazz listeners at the time, for trumpeter Kenny Dorham sings on all ten selections... Dorham had an OK voice, musical if not memorable, but the arrangements for these selections are inventive and pleasing".[3]
