Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Brian Olewnick awarded the album 3 stars, stating, "Live at Koncepts isn't at quite the level of the best of this band's studio efforts (Spirit of Nuff...Nuff may take the prize there), but is quite enjoyable on its own. Any Threadgill fan will want to hear it".[2]
