The Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos describes the lineup as "one of the more potent combos of 1954". Author and musician Peter Niklas Wilson called it "simply a typical blowing session, in which virtuoso up-tempo playing and a wealth of invention in a well-known framework count for more than structural innovation".
