The Penguin Guide to Jazz[2]

After the Morning was released by the Canadian label Dominic Sciscente Music.[1] The Penguin Guide to Jazz identified the shorter pieces as highlights – "often little more than a theme statement and a brief, cadenza-like solo."[2][note 1] The reviewers described the piano sound as "respectable for the time, but a bit cavernous."[2]
