Reviews of Eliana Tomkins

 

26/02/2006 Clive Davis, Sunday Times

"Here’s a recording that casts its spell slowly. Adapting Carol Ann Duffy’s poetry for a jazz group may seem a thankless task, but this London-based singer achieves that rare feat — a true marriage of verse and music. It helps, of course, that Duffy’s love poems have a conversational flow, but Tomkins’s undemonstrative delivery adds an unmistakably sensual charge. A classy band, with Peter King and Guy Barker sharing solos, simmers nicely, but this is very much Tomkins’s show." Clive Davis, Sunday Times, February 2006.

Lichfield Festival, October 2004 ” ... pairing the barbed words of national treasure Carol Ann Duffy with Eliana Tomkins’ subtly dynamic jazz. Result, performance heaven. Eliana Tomkins is sheer class bringing her own cool take on jazz classics from Ellington to Little Willie John. In short an evening of real sophistication.”
