The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars and stated: “All of the many collaborations between organist Shirley Scott and tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine in the 1960s resulted in high-quality soul jazz, groovin’ music that was boppish enough to interest jazz listeners and basic enough for a wider audience”.
