By turns meditative and playful, it combines outstandingly imaginative solos (from Getz and Corea) with impeccable ensemble work. The album as a whole possesses a freshness and beauty that hasn’t been diminished by time. […]

The variables are who he’s playing with, and unlike Getz/Gilberto (to use his most famous example), Getz’s not playing with a bunch of no-names that are just there to give the stars background instrumentation; here, he has three musicians who have already proven their worth ten times over, with the exception of Corea, who’s about to. […]

Technical perfectionists will hear a few squeaks on the LP’s second half (Getz’s drug problems were reputedly affecting his articulation somewhat), but Getz was such a master of mood, tone, and pacing that his ideas and emotions are communicated far too clearly to nit-pick. […]
