Allmusic 4.5/5 stars[3]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Cook awarded the album 4½ stars and stated "One of McLean's more underrated albums from a plethora of Blue Note releases, 1960's Capuchin Swing finds the bebop alto saxophonist in fine form on a mix of covers and originals... Capuchin Swing makes for a great introduction to McLean's extensive catalog".[3]
