Böblinger Bote: "Zu viel Langweilendes ist in diesem Genre bereits gesagt worden. Gut, daß es da noch den Schlagzeuger Paul Motian gibt. Die Drummer-Legende trommelt nämlich nicht nur wie vom anderen Stern, sondern zeigt auf seinem vierten Album On Broadway, daß es auch anders geht […] wunderschön unorthodoxe und dennoch zauberhafte Bearbeitungen… "

Downbeat: "The piano quartets are small, chamber masterpieces […] Potter's performance is magnificent, with the majesty of his simple, keening declarations on "The Last Dance" and his irreplaceable obbligato on the vocal tracks. […] Martin, measured and insouciant all at once, keeps the prefaces intact and sings with what seems to be a great deal of deliberation. These are stories she tells with clarity and with the beginning, middle and end you rarely find in Motians's late work."

La Marseillaise: "Plus qu'une relecture de standards, ce chapitre quatre est confondant de dialectique, avançant pas à pas sur des territoires jusqu'ici jamais arpentés."

Jazz Magazine: "Un disque à la fois simple, dense, accessible et beau… Rare donc."
