EDITORS’ NOTES

Singing a melody in key while pianist Ran Blake departs not just from the chords but the whole harmonic universe of the song: This is difficult. Vocalist Dominique Eade has the ears not just to stay with Blake, but to respond in kind to his enigmatic and painterly approach. Interpreting material from Lead Belly to Johnny Cash, Mahalia Jackson to Charles Ives, Eade and Blake grapple with the legacy of folk protest music in a set of stark beauty and immense power.
