Allmusic.com gave Saturday Night at the Village Vanguard a 4 1/2 star review:
This release, the third of four single sets that document Art Pepper’s well-received engagement at the Village Vanguard, adds “For Freddie” to the original three-song program. The other selections, which feature pianist George Cables, bassist George Mraz and drummer Elvin Jones in addition to the altoist/leader, are intense interpretations of “You Go to My Head,” Pepper’s “The Trip” and a 16-minute version of “Cherokee.”
