Writing in an English magazine of one of Bennie’s recorded solos around that time, critic Raymond Horricks said, “His execution is clearly defined, non-exhibitionistic and liberally impregnated with the devises and characteristic phrasing of the be-bop style, yet he always manages to retain something of the real jam session atmosphere.
The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 3 stars and stated “It’s evident from the opening pair of Latin-flavored performances that Back on the Scene is one of Bennie Green’s most diverse efforts. Green’s warm, supple tone and fondness for swinging, bop-influenced mainstream jazz and jump blues hasn’t disappeared; he’s just found new facets in his style… Even with this vast array of styles, Back on the Scene retains all the good-natured spirit and humor of his earlier Prestige albums”
