Alex Henderson in his review for AllMusic stated, "Tethered Moon embraces the late singer's repertoire on their own creative terms, and there's a definite freshness to the trio's impressionistic post-bop versions of "La Vie en Rose," "L'accordeoniste," "Bravo pour le Clown," and other gems associated with her. Without question, Chansons de Piaf is among the more adventurous and interesting jazz tributes of the 1990s".[2]

The PopMatters review stated, "As palatable jazz, Chansons d’Édith Piaf is more than acceptable. It’s an accomplished and pleasurable work. Most Piaf-philes will doubtless recognize it for what it is—a set of liberal interpretations used as groundwork for skilled improvisation. Followers of the Little Sparrow should merely be aware that Tethered Moon have painted her with broad strokes".[3]

Josef Woodard wrote in JazzTimes, "Tethered Moon, the inspired and uniquely flexible trio of Japanese pianist Masabumi Kikuchi, drummer Paul Motian and bassist Gary Peacock, brings to this project a passionate engagement and a willingness to take poetic liberties with the source material".[4]
