AllMusic     [4]

The AllMusic review by Ken Dryden stated, "In the early days of his career, trumpeter Wallace Roney was tagged as being yet another Miles Davis-influenced player, though a focused hearing of his fourth CD as a leader will demonstrate how much he was developing his own voice on this exciting hard bop session ... An enjoyable early effort".[4]
