“There are tender moments on many of her later records, though  they aren’t necessarily the moments that we think defined her, but Little Girl Blue allows that side to come forward much more clearly.”- Penguin Guide to Jazz

“Nina shines on these magnificently chosen standards, which showcase her remarkable piano playing that was clearly imbued with the Classical tradition (racism deprived her of the Classical music career she had dreamed of) and avoice which fluctuates between harshness and gentleness.” - Jazz Magazine
