The Penguin Guide to Jazz selected this album as part of it's suggested Core Collection, calling it probably the best Montgomery record currently available. It received five stars in Down Beat, with Ira Gitler writing that, "If anyone took time to examine the ballots of the 1960 critics poll closely, they would have seen that I was one of two who voted for Wes Montgomery as #1 on the guitar in the established category. This album had a lot to do with my vote. In the many times I have listened to this album, I have not become tired of it. I don t think I will. To produce easy-listening music with meaning is a high accomplishment. Strongly recommended. Montgomery incredible? I believe him!"
