Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Sean Westergaard awarded the album 4 stars stating "Each of these players has a highly individual voice on her respective instrument, and together they are three of the finest improvising women on the scene. This album isn't likely to get any toes tapping, but will reward careful listening.".[2]
