The Allmusic review by Ken Dryden stated "Although Gerry Mulligan and Bob Brookmeyer get top billing on this LP, the leader, composer, and arranger of all three compositions is cornetist Phil Sunkel. ...All of the music is enjoyable and falls clearly into the cool jazz genre, but it has languished in obscurity like Sunkel, though he was later briefly a member of the acclaimed Gerry Mulligan Concert Jazz Band".[3]
