|All About Jazz|||
The Allmusic review by Jeff Tamarkin awarded the album 4 stars, stating, "Holland uses those pieces, in particular, as launching pads for dynamic solo exhibits and inspired duets, but in the end it's not the dexterity of the individuals that impresses most, but rather the groupthink of the ensemble. ".
Earl J. Lundquist of Seattle Post-Intelligencer wrote "In his latest release, Pathways, bassist Dave Holland shapes his octet into a groove-heavy, blue-flame intensity with writing that is state-of-the-art hard bop... Recorded during a week-long stand at Birdland in New York City, the atmosphere combines with Holland’s writing and the virtuosity and inventiveness of the individual players to give this music the aesthetic thrust of classic Blue Note recordings. Dave Holland has created complex yet compelling and accessible arrangements, making Pathways a welcome addition to his discography."
