Skoot's Jazz (Skoot Larson USA):
"This World Class vocalist is deserving of more attention in the U.S.!" Skoot Larson
Bill at Sonic Wheel (USA): 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.
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.
What a memory-album!
Beautiful vocal jazz
Newspaper-critics after the release concert at Agder Theatre:
This is our Queen of jazz!
Words and music makes you fall in love and get very impressed.
This was beautiful, Hilde.
F.vennen Øivind Holte
