Review scores
Allmusic4/5 stars[2]

Scott Yanow reviewed the album for Allmusic and wrote that "[Don] Thompson, who plays second piano on Herbie Hancock's "Tell Me a Bedtime Story," jams with strong intuition and consistent swing, easily picking up on Shearing's musical directions during such songs as "Pent up House," "The Shadow of Your Smile," "Cheryl" and a couple of originals", and concludes by writing that Shearing "...had his career rejuvenated during his years on Concord through stimulating musical encounters such as this one. Fine music".[2]
