AllMusic4/5 stars[4]

In his review on AllMusic, Scott Yanow stated "Tenor-saxophonist Houston Person's Christmas album finds him jamming both newer songs and a few old classics. His warm tenor is featured with three different groups ... This well-rounded holiday album even sounds good in July".[4]
