The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "On his second recording, organist Joey DeFrancesco is heard in settings ranging from a quartet to a large orchestra. Although he is generally the main star, DeFrancesco welcomes such guests as tenors Illinois Jacquet and Kirk Whalum and guitarist John Scofield. DeFrancesco holds his own and is in top form".[3]
