Known by the Los Angeles Times as "... one of the jazz world's finest," when one listens to Allyson's exquisitely distinictive voice, one hears heart, intelligence, and a deep musical sophistication. From heartfelt to sassy, her emotional range is beyond that of her musical peers. And there is a literate and engaging connection that honors the great tradition of blues, jazz and roots, expands to the Great American Songbook, and embraces French and Brazilian rhythms. Together with an ensemble of fearless and powerfully committed jazz virtuosi, they have developed an effortless style uniquely their own.
