Lindsay Planer of Allmusic states, "It certainly ranks up there as one of Gordon's greats".[2] 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".[5]
