In his review on Allmusic, Ken Dryden stated: "Kenny Barron's star began to rise rapidly in the 1980s, though trio dates such as this live set from Imo House in Tokyo ... the pianist pulls all stops in this outstanding date. Barron is known for playing lengthy (yet never overly long) numbers in front of audiences; this evening is no exception, as the tunes average around 14 minutes each ... fans of the amazing Kenny Barron should make every effort to acquire it" [5]
