The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow stated: "the four originals (which alternate with standards) were all dedicated to disc jockeys of the time. The trio was pretty tight with Taylor in the lead and, although boppish, it also looked back toward the swing era... The four mambos are ideal both for listening and for dance music. An enjoyable set".[3]
