Allmusic4/5 stars[3]

The Allmusic review by Ken Dryden stated "Bob Brookmeyer is thought of as a cool jazz stylist, though the valve trombonist throws everyone a curve with these 1960 small group dates. Accompanied by pianist Jimmy Rowles, bassist Buddy Clark, and drummer Mel Lewis, Brookmeyer delves into music from the swing era, utilizing a mute throughout most of the album, something he doesn't use all that often".[3]
