The Allmusic awarded the album 3 stars and stated "Trombone Panorama was the first of several albums Kai Winding was to cut during the mid-'50s and early 1960s where he was joined by a shifting cast of fellow trombone players... The flowing seamless technique employed by these top slide-instrument artists resulted in a graceful, mellifluous sound that gave these recordings a chamber jazz feel". [3]
