The Penguin Guide to Jazz 3/4 stars[2]
Allmusic 4/5 stars[3]

The Penguin Guide to Jazz states "Bringing in Joe Zawinul and Yusef Lateef energised the band anew but Lateef's touches of exotica are an awkward match for the sunnier disposition of the customary material, Nevertheless Nippon Soul and In Europe are perhaps the best of this bunch".[2] The Allmusic review by Al Campbell awarded the album 4 stars and states "Cannonball Adderley is in excellent form on this live date".[3]
