Allmusic 5/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow stated, "Straight-ahead jazz fans should get this one".[2] C. Michael Bailey from All About Jazz 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]
