Reception

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 3½ stars stating "The pieces here are not Waldron's most adventurous, but that's just fine, because what's on offer is delightful... this is a fine and curious date; it showcases the pianist using the Steinway as a compositional element in his tunes and puts a different side of his mercurial musical personality on display".[1]
