AllMusic4/5 stars[4]

The AllMusic review by Michael G. Nastos said "This is jazz that is relatively cliché and quote-free; not groundbreaking, but a consistent, professional effort; the release is a testimony to Farmer's endurance as one of the truly great jazz musicians of the late 1900s. Recommended".[4]
