AllMusic4.5/5 stars[2]
All About Jazz5/5 stars[3]

AllMusic rated the album with 4½ stars; in his review, Scott Yanow noted: "it is the enthusiastic arranger/bandleader who takes honors with his consistently inventive writing and (one imagines) enthusiastic conducting. Highly recommended".[2] In JazzTimes Harvey Siders wrote: "while his concerted writing may be dense, it also swings fluidly. ...this is remarkably youthful vim and vigor for an 87-year-old".[4] On All About Jazz Marcia Hillman noted: "The octogenerian leader pays no attention to the numbers in his age. The music he writes, arranges and conducts is fresh and vital. This is big band music at its best, full of energy and excitement".[3]
