Source Rating
AllMusic 4/5 stars[3]

The AllMusic review by Scott Yanow stated "Although by the mid-1970s she had already been a professional singer for 30 years, Etta Jones was in reality just entering her musical prime. Having developed her individuality gradually through the years, she was heard at her very best during her long string of Muse recordings".[3]
