"...a smashing Russian-born vocalist (...) who is great with a lyric, as well as with tongue-twisting hard bop. She's a dab hand at the art of vocalese. Now, that's a very tricky art, a skill of taking a pre-existing jazz solo, putting lyrics to it and then singing it. As exemplified by the likes of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross. (...) Be amazed."
Stephen Duffy, BBC Radio Scotland, Jazz House, 04.03.2015.
"The New Star of Vocalese"
Luiz Orlando Carneiro,Jornal do Brasil, 07.03.2015
"Matveeva's offering provides a definitive look at the art of vocalese in the 21st Century"
"Deft vocal gymnastics that would make Betty Carter proud"
"Sextet is seamless and refined"
Michael Bailey, All About Jazz, 08.03.2015
"...Matveeva has articulation and phrasing that are ideal and her lyrics show that her vocal technical expertise also extends to her writing. When done well, in both writing and performing, vocalese can be exhilarating and this certainly applies here."
Bruce Crowther, Jazz Journal (UK), 04.2015
