In his Allmusic review, critic Scott Yanow complimented the playing of Pass and Pedersen but wrote, "the reason to acquire this set is for the remarkable Oscar Peterson. The pianist brilliantly investigates several jazz styles...Peterson really flourished during his years with Norman Granz's Pablo label, and this was one of his finest recordings of the period."[1]
