“Another milestone for Bunnett,” raved Lois Moody in The Ottawa Citizen. “Of Jane Bunnett’s limited recorded work to date, some of the most inspired has been in the company of pianist Don Pullen....He is again a major voice in this quintet session....With only six pieces in the 70-minute program, each is given extended development. Inventiveness is tested constantly. It’s the kind of challenge to which Bunnett and Pullen, in particular, seem to respond with great flair, drawing on their considerable resources to build and release tensions with authority.” Scott Yanow wrote of this disc in Cadence when it first appeared on the Denon label: “With Pullen...as an important co-star Jane Bunnett on Live At Sweet Basil proves herself to be one of the major soprano-saxophonists in jazz today, at Jane Ira Bloom’s level just behind Steve Lacy. Overall this is Bunnett’s strongest recording to date and is one of my favorite releases of 1991 thus far....”
