Lindsay Planer of Allmusic states, "It certainly ranks up there as one of Gordon's greats". Derek Taylor reviewed the CD reissue for All About Jazz in 2000 stating "While this disc isn’t a classic on par with say much of his Blue Note work it still offers up immediate proof of why he resides in the upper echelon of the tenor saxophone hierarchy".
