Professional ratings
Review scores
AllMusic4/5 stars[3]

Scott Yanow of AllMusic states, "A fine bop-based stylist, Montoliu generally offers few surprises to listeners but always swings. This CD is a typical outing for the pianist, featuring ten jazz standards, fine backup work by bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Akira Tana".[3]
