Latin Beat Magazine describes Elliott as "one of the west coast's finest trumpeters"; Cadence Magazine describes him "as a fire-breathing trumpeter in the lineage of Freddie Hubbard and Lee Morgan and his band is just as sharp." Ollie Bivins, of The Jazz Messenger Magazine and member of the Jazz Journalists Association, has put Elliott's music in his "top ten releases of the year" list.
