In his review on Allmusic, Steve Leggett notes that "Etta Jones could flat-out sing, and she never failed to make the blues, jazz, and Great American Songbook standards she sang her own, especially in her many collaborations with tenor saxophonist Houston Person, who was as sympathetic a player as any singer could ever hope for – Jones and Person simply clicked and understood each other as a duo ... This set is both a pleasant listen and a fun archival recording – it captures Jones and Person at their best in front of a nimble and flexible rhythm section"
