Steve Loewy of Allmusic stated, "this delightful collaboration between American trumpeter Woody Shaw and the Tone Janša Quartet works on nearly every level... Janša's fluid, driving lines fit beautifully with Shaw's concepts. Even more importantly, Shaw is in great form, and there is an electricity in the air that infuses each track... A strong addition to Shaw's and Janša's discographies, and a good introduction to the saxophonist's work".[2]
