Karrin_Allyson_L1 Karrin Allyson's voice sounds as if it has been warmed over charcoal. Her pliable instruments changes in a blink from honey to sass.

The Telluride Society for Jazz has brought Karrin back in town for its 2009 Winter Jazz series to perform Friday, January 30, 8 p.m. on the stage of the Michael D. Palm Theatre.

Music is in Karrin's genetic stew: both grandparents played classical sounds and her mother was a clasical pianist. Growing up, Karrin not only played piano, she also listened hard to a wide range of female singers/writers, including Carly Simon, Carol King, Joni Mitchell, and later,  Bonnie Raiit.

By junior high, Karrin was playing and singing in public. She discovered jazz in college upon hearing a Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderly recording.
