Allmusic reviewer Steve Loewy called it a "powerful live recording" and states "With the caliber of musicians comprising the trio, it is not surprising that there is a consistently high quality to these unusual interpretations, which, for the most part, merely hint at recognizable melodies... The three performers easily sustain interest for each of the lengthy tracks (the longest being nearly 22 minutes) without repeating themselves or running out of ideas. Pure joy". On All About Jazz John Sharpe said "it is an intriguing blend of the lyrical, whether composed or extemporised, and the abstract".
