ReceptionEdit

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "This disc certainly boasts an impressive backup crew but does not seem to know what it wants to be. The solos are relatively short... and little that is all that memorable actually occurs. Better to acquire Marion Brown's earlier recordings".[2]
