Reception

Billboard chose the album as their 'Soundtrack Spotlight' in their November 6, 1965 issue and wrote that "Getz's alto sax conjures up the feeling of a big city and the loneliness, excitement, despair, and frustrations of those who live in it. The tension mounts in the score as in the film".

Stephen Cook reviewed the album for Allmusic and wrote that Getz was "well-prepared for the demanding task of soloing atop expansive movie soundtrack charts...Amidst Sauter's kaleidoscopic and mercurial backdrop, Getz offers up a fine mix of fluid improvisation and solo commentary. Never overpowered by the, at times, monumental full-band outbursts, Getz is able to remain poised and even break through the walls of sound with vigorous yet cogent statements of his own".
