Professional ratings
Review scores
AllMusic4/5 stars[3]

In his review for AllMusic, Ken Dryden said "Dexter Gordon thrived on the attention of European jazz fans while living there during the 1960s and early '70s, while he also had a wealth of opportunities to record for labels on the continent. This 1975 session for Steeplechase, one of a dozen he made as a leader for the label in the mid-'70s, finds him in top form".[3]
