Thomas Conrad (USA) Columnist, JazzTimes, Contributing Editor, Stereophile. «I found it fascinating. This music is deep and soulful and rather mysterious… like Tanya. Her voice is wonderfully expressive. And she’s also got some genuine chops, as illustrated by «Tiny Bombs.» I like very much her interpretations of Cummings. I think that her strongest asset is her ability to create an atmosphere. In this regard she reminds me of Patricia Barber. They can both cast a spell.»
Django Bates (UK): Tanya’s voice is very beautiful. There is no doubt about that!
