AllMusic3/5 stars[2]

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic stated, "Coltrane achieves a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere on his first session. It may not offer anything new, but Moving Pictures is a promising debut from a young saxophonist who may have a lot to offer on his own terms".[2] In The Washington Post, Geoffrey Himes noted "Neither as revolutionary as his father's late recordings nor as conservative as the retro-hard-bop discs released by most youngsters, Coltrane's debut is an impressive, distinctly personal project".[3] All About Jazz said "The album develops slowly; many songs blend into each other without a pause. Some of the early numbers sound a little meandering ... The album's second half is definitely worth hearing, and certainly gives an indication of things to come. It wouldn't surprise me if the next album is better - maybe much better. The talent is there"[4]
