Professional ratings
Review scores
Allmusic4/5 stars[4]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow stated "On this unusual date, the instrumentation is simply four trombones ... The performances are mostly pretty concise with free sections segueing logically into more arranged sections. No one trombonist emerges as the main star; in fact there is no attempt in the liner notes to point out who plays what although Anderson's high notes give him away at times. The adventurous music is clearly not for everyone but it generally works and one does not miss other instruments. Worth hearing".[4]
