In his review for AllMusic, Alex Henderson states "Dawkins' band favors an inside/outside approach, and its influences range from Charles Mingus and Sun Ra to the Art Ensemble of Chicago and other AACM artists."
The All About Jazz review by Mark Corroto says "Dawkins write charts that draw from big band sounds pairing horns up to locomotive rhythms, something he took from his tenure with the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble and his travel in South Africa."
In his review for JazzTimes John Murph states "Sonically, the New Horizons Ensemble fits somewhere between Henry Threadgill's Very Very Circus and Ed Wilkerson's 8 Bold Souls.. Influences aside, what makes New Horizons Ensemble so intriguing is how it's able to assimilate various AACM touchstones and make them sound accessible-well, comparatively speaking."
