Overview

Dominique Eade has recorded only sporadically since her debut effort in the 1990s, yet she commands attention with each release. Her fifth recording is both demanding and intimate, featuring duets with the promising young pianist Jed Wilson, who has a knack for providing just the perfect voicing to accompany Eade's expressive vocals, which sometimes incorporate sudden twists and leaps. Eade's adventurous spirit extends to her wide-ranging choice of material, ranging from a touching rendition of the bittersweet "Never Let Me Go" to her playful interpretation of "You Fascinate Me So" (which features a particularly inventive solo by Wilson) to Leonard Cohen's "My Secret Life" (a work suggested by her pianist, where Eade exhibits her potent lower and middle ranges). But the vocalist is also a superb composer, as demonstrated in her striking originals. The pastoral sound of "Go Gently to the Water," the quirky infectious "Series of One," the demanding ballad "W.G." in which she hits high notes effortlessly, and the upbeat love song "Open Letter" leave lasting impressions of a gifted vocalist and composer who is clearly deserving of wider exposure.
