The album was reviewed by Scott Yanow at Allmusic who wrote that "For this very logical record, altoist Paul Desmond....makes the group a quintet and his interplay with Mulligan is consistently delightful. ...In addition, Desmond is showcased on "Koto Song" and as an encore Brubeck plays a lighthearted if brief "Sweet Georgia Brown." ."[2]
