Acute Inflections’

Press Kit

“A velvety mix of Erykah Badu & Billie Holiday paired with the cool grooves of her 007 on bass” is how one reviewer described Acute Inflections, New York’s sultry duo led by a former Broadway singer. They can often be found entertaining their clients (United Nations, Mercedes-Benz, etc.) at high-end events across the country. They have shared the stage with Jennifer Hudson, Keith Urban, and other notable artists at some of these events. Their albums are always favorites on the jazz charts, and their shows are both fun and enchanting. Just prepare yourself, because these sassy artists love engaging their audiences!

Press Reviews

5 Finger Review – “At times, you forget you are listening to only voice and bass.”

All About Jazz – “…the playful buoyancy of the duet is in full view.”

All About Vocals – “The duo treats each arrangement with care to brighten the sonic palette.”

Blogcritics – “The grooving bass lines of ‘Latch’ complement Douglas’ skill to move in sync with the rhythmic beats.”

Chalked Up Reviews – “…they have a hit on their hands and a song that could equally be covered by a multitude of artists.”

DownBeat – “Douglas’ lovely voice meshes with Pierre’s rich, thumping tones throughout…”

Eclectic Listener  – “They exude an ebb and flow that’s infectiously compelling.”

Jazz Weekly – “…sound like a jazz duet version of films noir.”

LemonWire – “For those who have not heard the two perform, Acute Inflections is a surprising take on jazz soundscapes, especially when used to take on other genres.”

Midwest Record – “…the intrigue that flows from when they really turn things on its heads will provoke quite a few.”

Part-Time Audiophile – “Douglas has one of those jazz singer voices that I love, all soft and affectionate and clear and bright. Pierre is remarkable because he supplies everything else with just a pluck of his fingers and a slap of his palm.”

Staccatofy – “Delightfully fresh and fun takes on some of the most cherished classics, a must add…”

Take Effect – “The pair do much with the elegant and versatile pipes of Douglas, and Pierre’s skilled bass certainly anchors down the landscape”
