The AllMusic review by Steve Loewy said: "Shepp has been criticized for his more commercial ventures such as this, but many will enjoy its accessibly light charm. ... There is a touch of a blues and R&B feel that adds to the ambiance. Unlike some of Shepp's other ventures, there are no attempted serious statements made -- only relaxing, good, swinging jazz that lifts the spirits or touches the soul, if only just a bit".[6]
