“New York Rendezvous is an exceptional addition to the vocal jazz contingency. Atman has much to say and she says it perfectly. Atman has perfected the malleable harmony line, her voice stretching and contracting effortlessly in all four dimensions, defying the quantum mechanics of sonics.” -C. Michael Bailey…All About Jazz “
"Atman has that irresistible intonation ringing in her timbres which jazz vocalists have. She has a storybook perfect pitch able to touch the listener’s soul, understand the sorrows that burrow in their hearts, stroke their sensibilities with tender caresses and lick their wounds. She has a voice that can make the hardest soul melt in her lap, and the repertoire that she chose to showcase on her latest album, New York Rendezvous will have audiences doing just that” -Susan Francis….JazzReview
“Irene Atman is the epitome of New York style. She knows the meaning and the feeling of what she sings. Her rendition of “Why Did I Choose You” will bring the sweet passions of love to a simmer. This song will never be sung any better, never with any more understanding and feeling of the sentiment expressed.” - B. Gish……Jazz Improv NY ..
