Professional ratings
Review scores
AllMusic4/5 stars[4]

At AllMusic Scott Yanow noted, "Houston Person is one of the last in a long line of thick-toned tenors who display soul in every note they play while bassist Ron Carter's versatility is legendary (it seems as if he has spent half of his life in recording studios). Their duet CD, although not inevitable, works out quite well...the main attractions of this date are the instrumentation and the strong interplay between Person and Carter".[4]
