Product Overview

Singer Karrin Allyson has never been satisfied merely to repeat herself. With Footprints, her tenth Concord Jazz CD, she fulfills the dream of recording with two of her vocal heroes - Jon Hendricks and Nancy King - while illustrating that she too is undeniably one of today's most distinctive and masterful jazz vocal stylists. The album also introduces Chris Caswell, whose literate, inventive new lyrics bring fresh perspectives to several of the modern jazz perennials featured herein. With a spirit that is, by turns, ebullient and affecting, Footprints shows Karrin Allyson to be a pacesetter among contemporary jazz singers.

Artist Bio
Karrin AllysonNow a popular and critically acclaimed fixture on the jazz landscape, Karrin Allyson established her mastery of lyric interpretation on nine previous Concord releases, including the Grammy nominated Ballads: Remembering John Coltrane, In Blue, and Wild for You. The singer projects an instantly recognizable tonal personality, illuminating hidden layers of emotion within songs that are drawn from a vast well of styles and genres - from the blues, contemporary pop, and the American Songbook, to the bossa nova, chanson, and the more specialized jazz and bebop repertoire. Indeed, Allyson husky tone can, ?makes palpable the carnal, the romantic and the spiritual, sometimes all at once? (Downbeat Magazine).What really separates Allyson from her peers is her ability to communicate oceanic emotions with minimal artifice. ?The idea of craft permeates her music,? wrote Richard Cook, author of the ?Penguin Guide to Jazz Records,? in a 2004 performance review that admirably encapsulates Allyson?s qualities. ?One of the most appealing things about her singing is its lack of mannerism. There are no dopey melismas, nothing of that afflicted gospel soul feel that a lot of younger singers depend on. She doesn?t try anything foolishly acrobatic. Yet in her way, she?s an ambitious and adventurous performer. She sometimes puts in a scat chorus which is done almost diffidently, without showoff contours. She?ll take over a familiar lyric and make it sound fresh by use of quiet touches - sitting back on certain beats, turning away from a big line and highlighting a different one.?
