Allmusic4/5 stars[3]

Allmusic's Jason Ankeny awarded the album 4 stars and states "Perhaps because trumpeter Clark Terry and trombonist Bob Brookmeyer spent the majority of their respective careers as sidemen, they retain a remarkable spirit of generosity and unity as leaders. For all the virtuosity on display across Gingerbread Men, what impresses most is the selfless coherence of the session as a whole".[3]
