The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars, stating: "This set of duets by David Murray (doubling on tenor and bass clarinet) and pianist Randy Weston is a bit of a surprise. Rather than performing standards or some of Weston's 'hits,' the duo stretches out on three obscurities by the two musicians (only Weston's 'Blue Moses' is slightly known) and Butch Morris' 'Clever Beggar.' Weston provides a solid harmonic and rhythmic foundation for Murray's thick-toned but sometimes screeching flights, and the combination works pretty well."[2]
