1. Reception

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek states "Shepp had hit his stride here compositionally. lots of free blowing, angry bursts of energy, and shouts of pure revelry are balanced with Ellingtonian elegance and restraint that was considerable enough to let the lyric line float through and encourage more improvisation. This is Shepp at his level best".
