The AllMusic review by Scott Yanow said "In 2000, Person and Carter recorded their third duet album, and the results are at least as rewarding as their first two collaborations. ... Person and Carter swing hard and sound at their most playful and creative in each other's company. They both sound inspired by this setting (where every sound counts) and play with full confidence; there is not a single hesitant moment. This is a particularly memorable and enjoyable effort that features the two musicians at their best".[4] In JazzTimes, Doug Ramsey stated "Tenor saxophonist Houston Person and bassist Ron Carter are alone together in their tonal roundness and relaxed exposition of rhythm and melody ... Carter solos on every piece, now and then breaking out double stops and other tricks of the bassist’s trade. On “Mack the Knife,” he and Person trade phrases to great effect. But it is when he is playing perfect complementary notes and laying the time down behind Person that Carter is at his best".[6]
