Allmusic4.5/5 stars[1]

The Allmusic review by Dave Nathan awarded the album four and a half stars and said that "these sessions catch Sarah Vaughan at her magnificent best. There may be claims of overdoing it or garishness. But her set of pipes and her willingness to use them dramatically, and sometimes coyly, to bring out the best of everything she sings brushes aside such criticisms as unjustified. Classic standard or novelty tune, she had full command of the vocal art."[1]
