Professional ratings
Review scores
AllMusic4/5 stars[3]

In his review for AllMusic, Scott Yanow said "The bassist contributed four compositions, which are joined by a Danish folk song. The nearly 15-minute "Dancing on the Tables" (which utilizes some childlike melodies) and the episodic "Clouds" are highlights of the continually intriguing and adventurous program".[3]
