In his review for AllMusic, Thom Jurek states "Ancestors is an intimate, canny dialogue between two great masters whose creative common language is not only expressive, it's edifying." The PopMatters review by John Garratt says "For an album coming from a pair of musicians that played together once in the ‘70s and never recorded themselves together until now, Ancestors is a damn fine work."
