Review scores

Ken Dryden reviewed the album for Allmusic and wrote that "While this is hardly "the Swingin'est Big Band Ever," as hyped...this 1963 edition of Woody Herman's big band is a strong one, with an emphasis on well-constructed blues charts. The only letdown of the date is Herman's throwaway vocal chorus in Chase's "Camel Walk," which follows the leader's potent clarinet solo".[2] Dryden praised Sal Nistico's performance on "Sister Sadie" and Phil Wilson's solo on "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" and "It's a Lonesome Old Town (When You're Not Around)".[2]
