Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone
"The result is PORGY AND BESS-meets-PET SOUNDS: lovely, weird, subtly psychedelic symphonic lounge music."
Spin
4 stars out of 5 -- "Wilson is clearly energized, and it's delightful to hear one virtuoso finally meet up with another."
Entertainment Weekly - p.126
"'They Can't Take That Away From Me' remade as a California Girls'-style shuffle is too novel to pass up." -- Grade: B+
Billboard (p.28) - "Wilson's layered a cappella renditions of 'Rhapsody in Blue' are brief but sublime. It's wonderful, indeed."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.93
3 stars out of 5 -- "Wilson's vocals are solid -- he's a nuanced singer of standards, particularly ballads."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.96
3 stars out of 5 -- "When Wilson manages to nail the more melancholy, bluesier material, such as 'I Loves You Porgy,' he produces his best vocal in years."
Uncut (magazine)
"'Nothing But Love' sounds more like an early Beach Boys song, but with one killer Gershwin chord change that Wilson navigates well."
