Allmusic 3.5/5 stars

Allmusic's Jason Ankeny said: "While Man & Woman embraces a mellower approach than guitarist George Freeman's other Groove Merchant dates, it's by no means the late-night boudoir record its erotic cover suggests – the stripped-down, nuanced sound instead adheres to a relatively straightforward soul-jazz formula, more focused and earthbound in its orientation than the average Freeman session. ... the guitarist embraces the change of pace, settling comfortably into the music's slow, slinky grooves – not only are his solos as imaginative as before, but they also boast a rippling sensuality otherwise absent from his previous records".
