Writing for Allmusic, music critic Scott Yanow called the album: "... a superior effort by Bill Evans and his trio in early 1966... this live set features the group mostly performing lyrical and thoughtful standards... However the most memorable piece is the 13½-minute "Solo - In Memory of His Father," an extensive unaccompanied exploration by Evans that partly uses a theme that became "Turn Out the Stars.""[1]
