The Rolling Stone Jazz Record Guide said, "both Ming and Home display an excellent balance between written material and solos by a distinguished group of sidemen". [4]

The Penguin Guide to Jazz selected this album, along with its predecessor Ming, as part of its suggested Core Collection. [2]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4½ stars, stating, "All of the brilliant players have their opportunities to make strong contributions to Murray's five originals (best known of which is "3-D Family"), and the leader's writing is consistently colorful and unpredictable. Recommended.". [3]
