The album won the 1969 Grammy for Best Jazz Instrumental Album, Individual or Group.

Writing for Allmusic, music critic Scott Yanow wrote of the album "The interplay between Evans and Gomez was growing month-by-month (the bassist had been with him for almost two years at this point) and is the main reason to acquire this disc although DeJohnette does offer some stimulating support."[1]
