The AllMusic review by Michael G. Nastos awarded the album 412 stars stating "A departure from Potter's small group efforts, this project is close to perfect, and considering his high-level output, may be the highlight of his discography. Everyone should hear Song for Anyone".[2]

PopMatters correspondent Will Layman observed "The general tone of Music for Anyone is gentle, despite Potter's ability to heat things up on tenor ... Though there are ten musicians woven through these carefully arranged and episodic compositions, there is plenty of room in the middle for rays of light and breathing room".[3]
