The Allmusic review by Ron Wynn awarded the album 4 stars stating "Although every arrangement doesn't click, the band successfully romps and stomps through enough cuts to show that the big band sound doesn't just mean "ghost" groups recreating dusty numbers from the 1930s and 1940s". The Rolling Stone Jazz Record Guide called the album "Abrams crowning achievement".
