Allmusic4.5/5 stars[5]

Allmusic reviewer Scott Yanow noted "This Muse recording differs from many of tenor saxophonist Houston Person's previous ones in that Person is backed by a piano rather than an organ; he sounds inspired by the "new" setting. ... A particularly strong effort by the very consistent tenor great".[5]
