Reception[edit] Edit

The Allmusic review by Richard S. Ginell awarded the album 3 stars noting "The whole record has a serene dignity, even at its loudest levels, that gets to you, and that should be enough for the devout Jarrett following. As for others -- well, it's definitely not a Top Ten choice for a basic Jarrett collection".
