"She’s hitting from beginning to end, sizzling and snapping with electricity, sliding across bar lines, scatting choruses, slowing to a whisper, bending melody line to her will. She is IN CHARGE." –Stereophile Magazine

Madeline Eastman has built her reputation as a bold and original interpreter of the jazz canon. Eastman, according to a broad consensus in the jazz press, belongs to that select group of living singers who are actual jazz musicians as well. Renowned for her wit and unpredictable stream-of-conciseness musical point of view, the LA Times called her “a consummate, inventive, endlessly entertaining artist.” Downbeat Magazine said “she is one of the most technically accomplished and soulful vocalists in jazz.” JazzTimes said “she’s an inveterately unpredictable traveler who never fails to take us to magical places.” Eastman has recorded seven CDs with such jazz royalty as Kenny Barron, Phil Woods and Tony Williams and has been recognized five times by both Downbeat Magazine’s Critic’s Polls and their Talent Deserving Wider Recognition.
