"Parlato's time has arrived...
the most alluring jazz vocal album of 2009."
— Billboard Magazine
"leagues ahead of the year's other vocal jazz recordings."
— Michael J. West, Washington City Paper
"The first truly original vocal jazz cd in many years."
— Jazz Radio Berlin
"Parlato has all the makings of jazz ascendancy. She has held her own with Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, and her rapport with the acoustic guitarist Lionel Loueke is very nearly profound."
— Nate Chinen, Jazz Times
