Allmusic awarded the album 4½ stars and the review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine stated, "Although the band was thrown together, there's a definite spark to this combo, which interacts as if it had been playing together for a long time. Throughout it all, Reece steals the show with his robust playing, and that's why Blues in Trinity rises above the level of standard-issue hard bop and becomes something special". [3]
