In his review on Allmusic, Stewart Mason states " It's impossible to fault any of Houston Person's albums from this period, as the tenor saxophonist remains a sublimely gifted soloist with a gorgeous, well-rounded tone and a smartly melodic soloing sense ... This is undeniably fine music, but there's so little to differentiate this album from so many others that Houston Person has done that finally, it's primarily of interest either to die-hard fans or those who have near heard any albums from this period in Person's career. Honestly, if you've heard one, you've heard them all". The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings describes Blue Velvet as one of Person’s best albums.
