Her solo-concerts are intimate, minimalistic - with complete focus on the voice - and with no use of electronic devises or effects. She occasionally accompanies herself on a few simple instruments (a small kalimba, and old mini tape-recorder, a glass.)
The repertoire for her solo-concerts is a mixture of improvisations and her own, pre-organised material.

Reviews
Chicago Reader
«...leaves little doubt that she's working territory that's all her own.» - Peter Margasak

All About Jazz
«... a provocative exploration of the limitless potential of the human voice, and a unique project that could only come from the unencumbered voice of Sidsel Endresen.» - John Kelman

«One is certainly not an easy listening experience, but it's quite a rewarding and haunting one.»
- Eyal Hareuveni

Side2
«Sidsel Endrsen har vært, er og kommer til å bli værende ei totalt original stemme.»
- Tor Hammerø

Dagsavisen
«De ti sporene framstår som små, presise og ofte vakre lydmalerier som trollbinder gjennom sin konsentrerte utforskning av lyder og teksturer.» - Jon Øivind Ness

Dagbladet
«...overrumplende kompromissløs...» - Terje Mosnes

Aftenposten
«Jeg tar ikke hardt i ved å hevde at Sidsel Endresen har egenart. «One» rommer noe så sjeldent som sann originalitet.» - Arild R. Andersen
