Allmusic4.5/5 stars[4]

The Allmusic review by Chris Kelsey stated "Braxton is never better than when he allows himself the most freedom. Here, though he is reined in a bit by the regular beat of Adzinyah's Middle-Eastern drumming, the saxophonist is relatively unencumbered by formal concerns; this is the best possible framework in which to hear Braxton's improvising. ... In contexts like this, Braxton is the most focused and intense of improvisors. It's evident, when listening to him play what is essentially "free" music, how little he really needs in the way of external organization. ... This set is a prime example of how transcendent an artist he can be, when left to his own devices".[4]
