In his review on Allmusic, Scott Yanow states "As the 21st century began, Houston Person was one of the last in a tradition of tough-toned but warm tenors able to straddle the boundaries between soul-jazz, hard bop, and soulful R&B. An expert at caressing and uplifting melodies, Person plays in the tradition of Gene Ammons. Person is in excellent form throughout this quartet/quintet date ... Sentimental Journey is a strong example of his talents". In JazzTimes, David Franklin wrote: "Houston Person is still carrying on the great tenor saxophone tradition that combines breathy soulfulness with blues-drenched, stomping swing. The lush-toned tenorist’s latest release, Sentimental Journey, verifies his continuing command of the idiom. ... It’s an increasingly rare pleasure to hear a sensitive player like Houston Person pay respect to great melodies, rendering them essentially as written. But it’s also good that his new record offers plenty of opportunities for straightahead blowing by some fine improvisers".
