“It's rare to find a pianist-singer with a style so finely integrated that it's hard to think of voice and piano as separate elements... We're lucky to have him."
Dave Gelly, The Observer

“He showed a winning combination of old-style British charm and new style-keyboard skill. He’s a class act…”
Jack Massarik, Evening Standard

“Elegance and sophistication personified... little short of miraculous, sheer class.”
Brian Blain, Musician Magazine

“The arrangements are strikingly original, respectfully presented, as you will never have heard them.”
Christopher Wood, The Independent on Sunday

“Alldis offers real interpretations of the lyric – that is, he sings the words as if he means them. This has always been a central purpose of jazz singing, though even well known figures don't always achieve it, and what a difference it makes.”
Andy Hamilton, Jazz Review

”Alldis is unique, a polished and delicate jazz pianist… he performs with such subtle precision.”
Dave Gelly, The Observer

”I thought your piano playing and the arrangements all complemented the fine vocal very well.”
Dave Brubeck, jazz musician

"Album of the week *** A frothily enjoyable experience.”
Jack Massarik, Evening Standard

"Thanks again for your warmth and enthusiasm that made the night so special..."
Tobias Sudhoff, Artistic Director, Jazz am Schloss, Rheine, Germany

"The celebrated Dominic Alldis and his friends appeared at the 2010 Mayfield Festival where their cabaret evening was an instant hit with a capacity audience. Alldis is a classy artist who beguiles his audience with his sheer professionalism, musicianship, humour and a distinctive communication. I urge any concert promoter or festival director to look their way; you won't be disappointed!"
Neil Mackie, Singer & Artistic Director of the Mayfield Festival

”A delightful and sophisticated evening's entertainment and a feast of lovely music presented with affection and enthusiasm.”

Iain Ledingham, Artistic Director, Amersham Festival of Music

“Dominic Alldis and the Pavao Quartet gave us a feast of smooth sublime ‘cabaret jazz’.  The creamy smooth harmonies of the original songs had been re-arranged with string quartet to give them a lilting lift with an enhanced rhythm and a fresh, vibrant urgency.  His depth and style of singing was perfect for the material he chose. The evening was a triumph."
Jan Murray, Concert Promoter, Churchill Music Society, Somerset

“The audience at St. Mary's, Banbury was treated to a magical evening of music from Dominic Alldis, Tim Garland, and the Pavao Quartet. The programme of French film music was a unique blend of jazz and classical playing, providing a marvellous opportunity to hear jazz piano, virtuoso saxophone, and string quartet playing at it's very best. It was a wonderful evening."
Michele Hunter, promoter of LiveArts@St.Marys, Banbury

“Many thanks and congratulations for a superb evening at the Corn Exchange on Wednesday night. I heard many enthusiastic comments from people who had been there. I hope to invite you back before too long…”
Mark Eynon, Festival Director, Newbury Spring Festival 2010
