Down Beat (7/97, p.62) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...a dynamic and energetic jaunt through the mainstream....they're primo when blazing through brisk material....Shew and Harrell make a great team..."
JazzTimes (8/97, p.116) - "Trumpet fans, grab this one....The brassmen are hot; it's not a cutting session but a complementary bright groove. In fact, you can hardly tell Shew and Harrell apart....the trumpet players flash consummate hard bop chops...with a rhythm section to match. Good title, good album."
