Allmusic     [3]

The Allmusic review by David R. Adler awarded the album 4 stars stating "Vertigo is Potter's most mature and expressive work to date. ... Vertigo reveals Potter as a player and composer with an uncommonly personal vision".[3]

All About Jazz correspondent Jack Bowers observed "All of the songs on Vertigo, Potter's fifth date under his own name for Concord Jazz, were composed by the 27-year-old South Carolinian, and none of them, to these ears, serves as more than a convenient springboard for improvisation ... if I were more enamored of Potter's still-developing prowess as a composer, the session would receive more than a lukewarm endorsement".[4]
