The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded the album 3 stars stating "This drummerless band moves through the charts like information through a printed circuit, and there is a impressive simultaneity to some of the cues which suggests that at least that some of this music was predetermined and meticulously rehearsed". The Rolling Stone Jazz Record Guide said "what should be a good band doesn't come up with much".
