Down Beat (p.58) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "The older guys sound great, if ultra laid-back, wending their way dreamily through six standards..."
JazzTimes (p.64) - "These masters couldn't be better suited philosophically....Mehldau shares the group's reverence for standards and the notion that 'free' can be soft, slow, smart, subtle and sophisticated."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The quartet's set consists of six jazz standards, all beautifully rendered, benefitting from almost 300 years-worth of musical experience."
