Album Review

Jazz vocalist Madeline Eastman's debut is quite impressive. With strong assistance from trumpeter Tom Harrell, pianist Mike Wofford (Paul Potyen fills in on one song), bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Vince Lateano, Eastman performs a wide ranging set. Highlights include such unlikely singing material as "Wild Is the Wind," and a minor-toned "You Are My Sunshine" (inspired by Mose Allison's version), Joe Henderson's "Inner Urge," and Bobby Hutcherson's "Little B's Poem" along with "Little Boat," "Nobody Else But Me" and "I Only Have Eyes for You." Lots of chances are taken on this enjoyable CD and Madeline Eastman shows that she has a flexible enough voice to handle all of the creative challenges. Highly recommended.

Madeline Eastman"s "Point of Departure"

I've loved this album for a long time. There are many songs here that you can't listen to just once. I was very pleasantly surprised to see these available on iTunes as opposed to dealing exclusively with the Mad-Kat label. Hopefully she will get the exposure she so richly deserves.

Love her smooth voice

I still have the original cd from her launch party in 1990, still is a sweet cd

What a Gem

As always with Madeline's work, this album is a collection of very interesting and personal interpretaitons. I can't decide which I like more but for now can't stop listening to "Kisses" and "Wild Is The Wind". While "No More"has been my favorite for a while.
