Read "Dominique Eade with the John Toomey Trio at the Attucks Jazz Club" reviewed by Mark Robbins

Dominique Eade has been teaching at The New England Conservatory for over 30 years. Her students have included Roberta Gambarini, Michael Mayo and Aoife O'Donovan.

Eade has made only four CDs as a leader, two for Accurate and two for RCA, all of which seem to ...
