The Allmusic review by Steve Loewy stated:

... this recording of fourteen tunes from the first half of the century is a major addition to Braxton's remarkable discography. Here, he takes old standards, songs like "Ja Da," "Star Dust," and "Rosetta," and gives them new twists. The variety is astonishing, as Braxton and Gillmor try every variation imaginable. ... Often the melodies and solos are true to the era, though there are enough surprises to make this an entirely entertaining and fascinating collection.
