Madeline Eastman
  • General Info
General Information
Madeline Eastman, is an American jazz singer. At 18, while watching the movie "Lady Sings the Blues," Madeline became enchanted with Diana Ross's portrayal of jazz legend Billie Holiday. Not yet realizing how serious and dedicated she would need to be, Eastman considered becoming a jazz singer. She has listened deeply to Miles Davis, particularly his mid-'60s quintet with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Ron Carter and Tony Williams. Among vocalists, her prime inspiration is Carmen McRae, one of jazz's most incisive lyric interpreters. "There's the holy trinity ? Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Carmen McRae ? and for me it was really Carmen from the beginning," Eastman said. In 2004, Ms. Eastman won 3rd place in the Down Beat Reader's Poll "Best Female Jazz Vocalist" and was recognized in Down Beat Magazine?s International Critics Poll as ?Talent Deserving Wider Recognition.? Eastman has long been heralded for her vocal gifts, interpretive savvy, and irrepressible sense of adventure. 
June 27th, 1954 in San Francisco (Age 64)
