“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."
“He showed a winning combination of old-style British charm and
new style-keyboard skill. He’s a class act…”
“Elegance and sophistication personified... little short of miraculous, sheer class.”
“The arrangements are strikingly original, respectfully presented,
as you will never have heard them.”
“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.”
”Alldis is unique, a polished and delicate jazz pianist… he performs with such subtle precision.”
”I thought your piano playing and the arrangements all complemented the fine vocal very well.”
"Album of the week *** A frothily enjoyable experience.”
"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!"
“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."
“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."
