The Time Out New York review by Hank Shteamer stated "It’s a major work befitting its fairy-tale title... No pianist achieved a more seamless blend of weirdness and warmth, and few recordings illustrate that as potently as this one".[2]

On All About Jazz Lyn Horton said: "The two instrumentalists nearly partition themselves from one another and the correspondence that occurs between them is thoroughly engaging, intriguing and challenging ... The duo's intention is not to establish synchrony but to discover the groove that surges out of placing musical elements against each other; developing an expressiveness that rises from that coincidence, which is strangely connected"[3]
