Marcela Breton of the Jazz Journalists Association nominated the album as one of the 10 Best of 2011.'s review by Dustin Garlitz states “Welcome to Hungary ! is a Bags and Trane collaboration configured for the 21st century. Tommy Vig’s Orchestra is truly outstanding on all fronts, and his arrangements are, of course, nothing less than top-notch."

All About Jazz's reviews by Jerry D'Souza, Hrayr Attarian, and Jack Bowers call the album “a gem of big band swing," “a well-rounded and delightful introduction to an artist who deserves long overdue recognition as a composer, improviser and instrumentalist," and “big-band jazz [leaning] toward the more adventurous," respectively.

Chris Spector of Midwest Record states “Certainly music for free thinkers."

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
