The All About Jazz review by Jack Bowers said "The mood throughout is cool and mellow, which is what Person and Carter do best. If you must revisit these explicitly warm and popular themes, you couldn't choose more amiable companions with whom to undertake the journey". The Times critic wrote: "In this tribute to togetherness the saxophonist Houston Person and the bass player Ron Carter take eight vintage ballads, plus a brace of originals, and play them without any other assistance. Jazz duos can be somewhat scholarly — too raw to be romantic — but as in the best relationships this pair’s myriad qualities make the mood work". In JazzTimes, Britt Robson stated "A particularly notable charm of their combination is that Carter, the ostensible “rhythm” player, is the alpha figure. Houston Person will forever be recognized for his enveloping sound and reliably melodic approach, the plush tone and slyly inventive romanticism he derives from his horn. It’s as majestic and roomy as a yacht, providing Carter the space to roam freely while piling up deftly sophisticated incisions and counterpoints to both his partner’s robust saxophone phrases and the venerable songs at hand".
