"Ms. Iliya's vocals of sultry expression allow her to offer interesting vocal levels for the listener to grow their jazz understanding. Ms. Iliya's sense of timing as she switched moods of a tempo in midstream is comparable to the most seasoned artist. Mostly it's her talent for pulling her soul out from within and attaching it to her voice for an emotional roller coaster ride for the recipient. Note worthy as well are the musicians allowing this wonderful experience to be welding together to fit each cut separately." - jazzreview.com (click here for full review)

"Iliya sings with nuance and sophistication that defy her youth. Her breathy, seductive tone rivals the elegance and soothing quality of a dry Martini." - Adam Gold, The Boston Phoenix
