Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
AllMusic 4.5/5 stars[2]
The Guardian 4/5 stars[3]

Thom Jurek of AllMusic states, "In all, this is one of Bley's most curious and intimate works, where his own musical mind is given problems -- presented by serialism and its own undoing -- and his ways of resolving them or casting them out of his vocabulary. Brilliant".[2] The Guardian review by John Fordham awarded the album 4 stars noting "This is perhaps predominantly a set for free-jazz fans; however, it's jostling with absorbing melody, and all 18 tracks are invitingly short".[3]
