press quotes

"Her voice was rich and clear and strong in all ranges; she had musicianship and cool intelligence...she had absorbed some of Saran Vaughan's fearsome technique." — Ben Ratliff, The New York Times, 2005

"I was fortunate to hear Dominique Eade in person during the last Jazz Times Convention in 1998. Someone needs to get this extremely talented vocalist into the studio for a record date. If you haven't picked up all of her CDs, do so before they become collector's items fetching high prices." — Ken Dryden, All About Jazz, 2005

"Dominique Eade's shows last year in this same room…were among the best local jazz performances of 2005. Eade's singing was marvelous, whether singing actual words or applying her voice to instrumental lines. [Jed] Wilson's piano work, skilled and subtle, made plain why a guy so young has become Eade's duo partner of choice." — Bill Beuttler, The Boston Globe, 2006

"The Boston-based vocalist recently came to town and introduced a handful of new, grippingly poetic tunes as well as very impressive pianist, Jed Wilson she sings [them] with a voice that enjoys its own acrobatic splendor." — Jim Macnie, The Village Voice, 2005

"Dominique Eade has long been one of the finest jazz singers in a town full of great ones. (Many of the current generation are her former students.) She's at the top of her game these days." — The Boston Phoenix, 2006

"Besides, I already knew who the Next Thing in jazz singing would be: Dominique impossibly versatile vocalist, composer, lyricist and instrumental arranger." — David Hajdu, The New York Times Magazine, 2000

"One of the finest musicians in town." — The Boston Phoenix, 2005
