Whether singing from the Great American Songbook of Gershwin and Porter, or the Great American Jazz Songbook of Duke, Thelonius, Miles and Dizzy, Karrin Allyson brings it all together – and makes sense of it all – with her warmth and depth. She’s not just singing a lyric, she’s telling you a story.
With a background in classical piano performance, Karrin isn’t just a pretty voice! In fact, four of Allyson's albums — “Ballads: Remembering John Coltrane” (2001), “Footprints” (2006), “Imagina: Songs of Brasil” (2008), and “'Round Midnight” (2011) — have received Grammy nominations for Best Jazz Vocal Album.
“She’s been described as a “musician’s musician,” and for once the overused term actually makes sense — a complete performance by a complete artist — one of the jazz world’s finest.” — Don Heckman, The Los Angeles Times.
