Reception

The Allmusic review by Richard S. Ginell awarded the album 4 stars stating "While Sun Bear breaks little ground that his earlier solo piano albums had not already covered, it is nevertheless richly inventive within Jarrett's personal parameter of idioms. If price is not a barrier, the Jarrett devotee need not hesitate".
