In his review for AllMusic, Alain Drouot states "The quieter passages certainly betray her European origins, but are not a distraction from this otherwise energetic, soulful, and pleasurable set."
The All About Jazz review by Nic Jones says "All three players are deeply alert to the integral values of free playing and they mine the seam so deeply that it seems as though their creativity is bottomless."
