Mojo (Publisher) (5/03, p.116) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A fascinating two-tenor blowing session from 1957....The greatest delight from this date is the chance to hear the quirkily imaginative Gilmore in a rare setting outside his regular spot with the Sun Ra Arkestra..."0.3354385

Rolling Stone (6/29/93, p.44) - "...Orderly yet enthusiastically performerd, JOY reveals Ra's swinging influences--Duke Ellington, Fletcher Henderson and Tadd Dameron....There are traces of the exotica and avant excursions that the Arkestra would later patent....alongside lots of well-crafted big-band arrangements and fine hard-bop solos..."Down Beat (10/95, p.63) - 4.5 Stars - Very Good/Excellent - "...In 1957, Ra occupied a low orbit around the planet, not completely free of the gravitational pull of conventional jazz.
