Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4/5 stars[2]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Cook awarded the album 4 stars and states "With his flexible phrasing and muscular tone, Turrentine dives into the lush arrangements... Purists who usually cringe at late-'60s jazz dates like this (yes, there is a Beatles cover here) might be pleasantly surprised. For those who feel Bacharach and Jimmy Webb provide fine material for jazz, then The Look of Love is a must".[3]
