AllMusic     [2]

Scott Yanow of AllMusic states, "This interesting and well-rounded LP has two separate sessions originally cut for the Felsted label. Cornetist Rex Stewart is fiery on the first date, jamming on a trio of his worthy but obscure originals ... The three numbers from the later date have moody arrangements ... Superior music that will hopefully resurface".[2] The Rough Guide to Jazz said "this is a fine session with Stewart's sometimes buzzy open-horn still in full control".[3]
