    Another Country is an album that radiates warmth. Not just the warmth of southern seas and skies, but the human warmth that beams directly out of Ms. Wilson's heaving heart.
  2. This is a belting return to form by the best vocal artist in jazz.

    Though there are a couple of missteps here, Another Country is a welcome new phase for Wilson.

    To her credit, the songs she has written here sustain a mood.

    The light touch and subtle shading of this session, recorded in Florence, are also down to a French/Italian/Nigerian lineup featuring two percussionists (Mino Cinelu and Lekan Babalola), accordion and bass.

    Minimalist production values prevail and succeed in highlighting the beautiful--and often haunting melancholic--sonorities of Wilson's pipes. [Sep 2012, p.90]
