Allmusic4.5/5 stars[5]

Allmusic reviewer Ron Wynn noted the album was "A departure for tenor saxophonist Houston Person, normally a soul jazz, blues, funk, and ballads player. This is more mainstream jazz and hard bop ... All those who felt that Person couldn't play bop changes were left looking silly when this came out in 1980".[5]
