Even before jazz vocalists sang their way back to the top of the heap in the 1990s, Madeline Eastman had established herself as a singular talent, capable of reshaping the art on her own terms in the new millennium. A thrilling live performer, Eastman takes her audiences on unpredictable musical journeys, embracing listeners in the radiant warmth of her personality, dazzling them with her vocal charm, breaking them up with her sharp wit, and inspiring silent awe with breathless readings of tender ballads.
