Billboard chose the album as their 'Soundtrack Spotlight' in their November 6, 1965 issue and wrote that "Getz's alto sax [sic] conjures up the feeling of a big city and the loneliness, excitement, despair, and frustrations of those who live in it. The tension mounts in the score as in the film".[4]

Stephen Cook reviewed the album for Allmusic and wrote that Getz was "well-prepared for the demanding task of soloing atop expansive movie soundtrack charts...Amidst Sauter's kaleidoscopic and mercurial backdrop, Getz offers up a fine mix of fluid improvisation and solo commentary. Never overpowered by the, at times, monumental full-band outbursts, Getz is able to remain poised and even break through the walls of sound with vigorous yet cogent statements of his own".[2]

The Penguin Guide to Jazz Recordings describes the album as “a formidable piece of work.”[3]
