allmusic
While displaying a jazz singer’s mastery of melodic nuance and improvisatory phrasing, Wilson draws on a variety of non-jazz idioms — roots music, rock, Delta blues, country, soul — to create a kind of earthy, intelligent pop with obvious crossover appeal. […]

All About Jazz
While Jobim’s “Waters of March” does not fit the tried-and-true formula, it allows Wilson the opportunity to lighten her session with a message that speaks, nevertheless, the same language as the blues: a promise of good times ahead. A highly recommended album, Belly Of The Sun returns to the land where it all began and takes us along for a soul stirring ride. […]

BBC
I hope that this album does complete the trilogy. While it is goodand will satisfy Wilson’s fans, it suggests that this format is getting mined to exhaustion. […]
