Allmusic.com gave Quintet/Sextet a 3 star review:
Less heralded than their collaboration with Thelonious Monk (as documented on Bags’ Groove and Miles Davis and the Modern Jazz Giants), this August 5, 1955 session with vibraphonist Milt Jackson was Davis’ last all-star collaboration before the formation of his first classic quintet. It marked a farewell to an older generation of acolytes and fellow travelers; Davis was entering a new era of leadership and international stardom, and generally he would only record with his working groups. …. Davis and Jackson combine for pungent voicings on the head to “Bitty Ditty,” then demonstrate their elegant mastery of harmony and swing. Both are inspired by the shape of Jones’ line, and are completely unfazed by its intricacies.
