« One of bassist Ron Carter's better albums as a leader, this CTI LP features a very compact quartet comprised of tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson, pianist Roland Hanna (keyboardist Richard Tee sits in on one number), drummer Billy Cobham and Carter. All of the music (even the ballad "Will You Still Be Mine?") has a blues feeling although several are not really blues. However, the quality of the solos is high, and this date lives up to one's expectations. » AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow

"Surprisingly, though, Ron Carter’s second CTI recording, "All Blues", fell well below the radar. It was hardly noticed when it was first issued in early 1974 (his 1973 CTI debut, "Blues Farm", which was hardly a hit, still remains better known). Interestingly, it’s probably among the best of the albums the bassist waxed for the CTI label between 1973 and 1976. This is due in no small measure to the commanding presence of tenor saxophonist Joe Henderson on ‘A Feeling’, ‘117 Special’, ‘Rufus’ and ‘All Blues’. Carter here also solidifies a simpatico musical kinship with pianist Roland Hanna, who he’d first played with on a European tour in 1969. Hanna is especially featured on the florid trio feature, ’Light Blue’ (not the Monk piece), as well as Carter’s bop-y ‘Rufus’ (not the Archie Shepp piece). Not surprisingly, Ron Carter dominates the proceedings, with his especially distinctive bass helming any number of attractive solo features (not to mention the overdubbed bass 'solo' of ‘Will You Be Mine’)." - Doug Payne/Jazzonline
