ReceptionEdit

The Allmusic review by Sean Westergaard awarded the album 4 stars stating "This band has become one of the finest jazz ensembles of the last several decades, and there will probably come a time when folks will be drooling over any previously unreleased scraps the same way they do today over lost Monk and Coltrane recordings. The improvisations and interactions -- not to mention the dynamics -- can change from one performance to the next, and it's interesting to hear how these players approach the tunes on different takes. The package is lovely, with liner notes from all the bandmembers, and, of course, the playing is phenomenal".[3]
