Review scores

Allmusic awarded the album 4½ stars with its review by Michael G. Nastos stating, "Of the limited discography offered to us by Jim Pepper, this is his finest contemporary recording... Pepper creates world jazz fusion with a twist relating to his heritage, something that perhaps nobody else has done, or is capable of" and calling it an "inspired and inspirational set, which is highly recommended".[3]
