Allmusic 4/5 stars[3]

The Allmusic review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine awarded the album 4 stars and stated "All of Bennie Green's Blue Note records were rich with joyously swinging blues and bop, highlighted by his warm, friendly tone and good humor. Walkin' & Talkin' , his third record for the label, was no exception to the rule... The result is no different from Green's two previous Blue Note records, but it's no less satisfying, and fans of swinging bop should be contented with Walkin' & Talkin'".[3]
