In his review for AllMusic, Chris Kelsey states "Though Ebu has a taste of the arcane, it is mostly a collection of relatively straightahead Bluiett-penned blowing vehicles done with fire and invention. Bluiett has the biggest sound in town; his phrasing and articulation is a little heavy, as one would expect, but he plays with a strength and conviction that's rarely equalled by other baritonists... This music has a manifest unruliness, a spirit of adventure; it leaps outrageously into the unknown and usually lands square on its feet."[2]
