Scott Yanow stated in his Allmusic review: "This collaboration is predictably dull... one of Bill Evans' least significant recordings, a weak third stream effort." In contrast, Roger Crane states in his All About Jazz review "Although dismissed by some critics, this CD, with arrangements by Claus Ogermann, is very lovely. Evans was very proud of this album. Ogermann's charts are sweetly romantic rather than overbearing, and this gives Evans and his trio (with bassist Chuck Israels and drummer Grady Tate) room to maneuver. Evans' composition "My Bells" is one of the stronger cuts."
