Allmusic4.5/5 stars[2]

Ron Wynn reviewed the album for Allmusic and wrote that "Shearing's sessions are usually more introspective and light than upbeat and hot, but Grappelli's soaring, exuberant violin solos seem to put a charge into Shearing, who responds with some of his hottest playing in many years".[2]
