Winter Jazz Presents Karrin Allyson In Concert At The Palm Friday
[click "Play" to hear Karrin Allyson interview]
Karrin Allyson's voice sounds as if it has been warmed over charcoal. Her pliable instruments changes in a blink from honey to sass.
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.
