In a double review for All About Jazz, John Sharpe states "The trombonist's loquacious lines confound expectation, taking inventive twists, sometimes declamatory, at others cajoling. His lustrous tone blends well with Moondoc's deep, blues tinged cry, which only sparingly hits the upper registers."
