AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Laid-back and loosely swinging, Good Move captures organist Freddie Roach near the peak of his form. Roach never leans too heavily on his instrument, preferring a calmer, tasteful attack, yet he is never boring because he has a strong sense of groove.

He keeps things moving on slower numbers like Erroll Garner’s “Pastel” and Gershwin’s “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” but the true highlights are on originals like “Wine, Wine, Wine” and “On Our Way Up,” where the bluesy structures and fluid rhythms give Roach a chance to stretch out.

Throughout the record, he is capably supported by guitarist Eddie Wright and drummer Clarence Johnston, as well as trumpeter Blue Mitchell and tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley, who both contribute fine solos.
