For All About Jazz, Jack Bowers wrote: "Those who have heard Houston Person before will know pretty much what to expect from Nice 'n' Easy; those who haven't are in for a pleasant ride. Even though Person never strays from conventional norms, neither does he undervalue the music or its import, lending every tune the full measure of his attentiveness and ardor". In JazzTimes, Owen Cordle wrote: "Person is a connoisseur of melody, and he solos in a way that honors the rhythms of those melodies. He can alter his tone from tender restraint to joyful shouts. He is ever-soulful and is as capable of extroverted double-timing (“Bluesology”) as he is of economical exposition (“Ill Wind”). More young saxophonists should study the gospel according to Person".
