Coda commented: "… stimulating musical conversations … Music not unlike the old Louis Armstrong - Earl Hines duets." Jim Santella (Jazz News) wrote the "… duo creates impressionistic landscapes for the listener to interpret with personal reflections." Frank Rubolino (Cadence) concluded "What results from their association is a private conversation as delicate as lace and as intricate as a maze." Thomas Peake (Westword) wrote "Gallery has an avant edge just beneath the contours of its melodic moments." Bill Shoemaker (JazzTimes) wrote "The luminosity of the music is enhanced by CIMP's live to 2-track recording technique which allows Ragin's clarion horn to meld with a very full piano sound."
Alexandre Pierrepont listed this as one of the 10 best of 1999.
