"She draws people into an intimate space… simply to enjoy that feeling of being ‘up close and personal’… that makes us sit back with a sigh and simply enjoy that Krall really is very good." The Telegraph (London)
"In her dark whispery alto… the effect is to turn songs into mysterious stream-of-consciousness ruminations… in a private language that is all about rhythm." New York Times
