Review scores
Allmusic4.5/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic site awarded the album 4½ stars.[2] C. Michael Bailey from All About Jazz in reviewing the 2006 release of the complete Prelude recordings stated "There may be an argument that The Red Garland Trio at the Prelude is the last of the great Garland Trio recordings. The pianist performed and recorded sporadically until his death at 61 years old in 1984. But it is these Prelude sides illustrate Red Garland at top form in his craft".[3]
