Critical reception

Billboard said "This album is remarkable not only for the superb modern musicianship...but for their successful use of varied old and new jazz sources."

John Fordham of The Guardian said "if these two saxophonists play with an even, almost chilly undemonstrativeness, their melodic ingenuity is dazzling". Peter Marsh, writing for BBC Music, said "Graceful, intelligent improvising that swings - what more could you want? Highly recommended." Scott Yanow, writing for AllMusic, said they "always made for a perfect team."

The Penguin Guide to Jazz selected this album as part of its suggested Core Collection.
