Allmusic 4/5 stars[5]

The Allmusic review by arwulf arwulf noted: "Ten Trombones Like Two Pianos consists of 12 grooved up slip-horn routines delivered by eight tenor and two bass trombones with stylish rhythm accompaniment. ... delightfully suave, sophisticated and relaxing. ... will appeal directly to those who crave late-'50s mainstream jazz, Hollywood production and crisp, cool lounge music."[5]
