In his review for Allmusic, Stephen Cook calls the album "a set that qualifies as one of Farmer's best. A must for every jazz collection". The Penguin Guide to Jazz is similarly positive, giving it a maximum four-star rating. It comments on the strengths of Gryce's compositions, mentioning "Evening in Casablanca" and "Satellite" for their "unusual structures" and "Nica's Tempo" for being "constructed more from key centres than from chords, [it] might be his masterpiece".
