Dominique Eade & Ran Blake: Town And Country

Read "Town And Country" reviewed by Jerome Wilson

Pianist Ran Blake has a long track record of collaborations with vocalists starting over 50 years ago when he made the album The Newest Sound Around with Jeanne Lee and continuing in the years since in recordings with Chris Connor, Christine Correa and Sara Serpa among others. This is his second meeting on disc with his fellow instructor at the New England Conservatory, Dominique Eade. The first, Whirlpool, fit snugly in with Blake's prominent film noir interests. This remarkable new ...

Dominique Eade & Jed Wilson: Open

Read "Open" reviewed by Jim Santella

The jazz duo allows a vocalist to communicate with her audience more completely than any other format, since you get the pure essence of her voice along with just enough accompaniment to matter.

Her superb vocal flexibility shows up on each track as she reaches ...

Dominique Eade + Jed Wilson: Open

Dominique Eade on Mountain Stage

Read "Dominique Eade on Mountain Stage" reviewed by Ken Dryden

One of the most intriguing singers to emerge on the jazz scene during the 1990s was Dominique Eade, a gifted, chance-taking alto with a very expressive voice. Her considerable abilities as a composer and arranger, and her desire to seek deserving but less frequently performed songs, along with surrounding herself with top-flight musicians add to her appeal.

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

Dominique Eade: The Long Way Home

Read "The Long Way Home" reviewed by Jack Bowers

The review in a moment. First, the nit–picking. When a singer has such first–class material as “Let’s Take the Long Way Home,” “Baltimore Oriole” or even “Anywhere I Wander” to choose from, why would he or she open an album, as Dominique Eade does, with something as hackneyed as Elton John / Bernie Taupin’s “Come Down in Time”? If you have a logical answer, drop me a line. I can’t figure it out. Perhaps she intended to pave the way ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
