Allmusic.com gave Look to the Rainbow a 4 1/2 star review:
This was a beautiful bossa nova record of Astrud Gilberto’s vocal stylings…All the material (32:13) here, with the exception of “Learn to Live Alone” and “Pretty Place,” which were arranged by Al Cohn, were arranged by Gil Evans. With the exception of a Johnny Coles trumpet solo, the personnel was uncredited on this 1966 recording. Discographies have credited Bob Brookmeyer (valve trombone), Kenny Burrell (guitar), and Grady Tate (drums), but except for a few bars of sax, there was no solo indivdualism in this large Creed Taylor-produced orchestra.
