Bill at Sonic Wheel (USA):stars(5/5)
Fantastic! One of the best jazz albums I've heard in years! Superb singing. World-class musicianship. Pure, sweet (but not overly so), honest, and fine in every way! Hilde has a wonderful voice!

Orkesterjournalen (Sweden): Hilde's voice is expressive, and she interprets the lyrics with a huge sence of storytelling.
Japan: stars(5/5)


All About Jazz (USA): Hefte's presentation is elegant and playful, and always personal.(...)On these songs Hefte proves herself an intelligent singer who can feel and play with the lyrics, melody and rhythm.

Germany: Hilde Hefte knows how to sing, has got class, and is not behaving like a diva. (...) sophisticated, in an old fashion way, with evening-dress and tuxido.
