"Hoy es 9 de Junio del 2002.... Hoy Elena Burke ha dejado de existir fisicamente pero jamás se alejará de la memoria y el cariño de los que la conocimos y de los que disfrutamos de su inmenso arte.Este disco y otros... y muchos otros no serán nunca suficientes para valorar a la "Señora Sentimiento".Sea este un pequeño homenaje."

"What kind of music do you imagine when you hear the words Cuban music? Those who don't know much about it might imagine something impassioned but rather naive. However, what you hear on this CD is the ultimate of sophistication. For example, the phrases played by the flute, which you can listen to at the intro of Comprension is played so skillfully and gorgeously that it has no peer except Hubert Laws. And Malena Burke's skill of singing and her voice give us wave of sentimentality but they aren't any kind of saccharine sentimentality. Anyhow you can't be disappointed by the CD if you like Buena Vista Social Club or such female singer like Sarah Vaughan even though you don't know much about Cuban music."
