All About Jazz(not rated)[3]

The Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album four stars and states, "This is collaboration in its purest and most elegant form."[2]

Thom Jurek of Allmusic wrote "This time out, Corea and Burton picked pieces by some of their favorite composers -- mostly from the jazz world, of course -- yet chose compositions that were less than obvious... The duo's approach in wedding mainstream and modern jazz (often inside the same tune) will appeal mostly to fans of the duo's previous six recordings. That said, Hot House is a further example of the nearly symbiotic language they've developed over the past 40 years, and is a stellar example of masterful dialogic articulation and execution. This is collaboration in its purest and most elegant form."
