The New-York Times
Occasionally you hear some kind of clinking, maybe from Ms. Wilson’s bracelet; she gooses the rhythm section with grunts, the way she might on a gig, or wanders off microphone and sings a few lines to the walls. […]

Not everything on Loverly works. Wilson’s voice is perfectly suited for breathy, glacial ballads and earthy grooves. But on the upbeat “Lover Come Back to Me,” she sounds slightly enervated. […]

allmusic
The reading of “Black Orpheus” here is unusual: Wilson is very conservative in her approach to the melody, so much so that the beautiful Portuguese “saudade” element is texturally amplified and bossa is stretched to the breaking point. […]
