The Allmusic site awarded the album 3 stars stating "Baritone-saxophonist Gerry Mulligan and actress Judy Holliday were an 'item' around the time of this recording. Their one meeting on record features Holliday doing some effective singing on eleven songs, mostly lesser-known standards plus four songs co-written by the two leaders. Unfortunately Mulligan's Concert Jazz Band is largely wasted, being restricted to anonymous accompaniment of Holliday, making this CD of greater historical value than of interest to jazz listeners".[2]
