Allmusic.com gave Zappa in New York a 4 star review:
Zappa in New York was recorded in December 1976 at the Palladium and originally intended for release in 1977. …The Zappa band, which includes bassist Patrick O’Hearn, percussionist Ruth Underwood, and keyboard player Eddie Jobson, along with a horn section including the two Brecker brothers, was one of the bandleader’s most accomplished, which it had to be to play songs like “Black Page,” even in the “easy” version presented here.
