Allmusic.com gave Montreaux II a 4 star review:

Bill Evans’ second recording at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1970 was a highly anticipated concert, finding the pianist in peak form, accompanied by bassist Eddie Gómez and drummer Marty Morell. His originals include the rhapsodic “Very Early,” the turbulent “34 Skidoo,” and an aggressive rendition of “Peri’s Scope.” His introspective take of Burt Bacharach’s “Alfie” is played at a leisurely tempo, while his take of Earl Zindars’ “How My Heart Sings” simmers slowly to a boil. His driving setting of Johnny Carisi’s “Israel” has an intense Eddie Gómez solo and a lively exchange with Morell as its centerpiece.
