"That Nanette Natal is a genuine jazz singer in the grandest tradition of Ella, Sassy, and Dinah Washington (whose approach she recalls a bit), is clear from the first moments of her entrance on Stairway to the Stars. Backed only by drums, she attacks 'Fascinating Rhythm' with utter confidence and full-throated passion, tempered by a supremely confident playfulness. Her extended scat section here recalls Ella at her most daring."
- All About Jazz
"Natal revitalizes seven standards with all kinds of chance taking, sometimes recalling Ella, Sheila Jordan and Sassy but often scatting in her own distinctive style. Her creative jamming on a long vamp during an unusual version of 'I Won't Dance' puts her up there with the top Jazz singers of the 1990s."
