The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "The mostly little-known material (five originals by the sidemen plus "Here's That Rainy Day") suits Baker fine. The emphasis is on slower tempoes (other than Buster Williams' closing blues) including a pair of jazz waltzes. Baker's chops sound fine within the limited scope that he plays. The overall results are not essential but are worthwhile.".[3]
