Karrin, has been nominated for 5 grammy awards and is known as “one of the finest jazz interpreters around” - Jazz times. She is an impressive improviser and a powerful performer. With the experienced trio of bassist Tom Warrington (Buddy Rich / Stan Getz), drummer Joe La Barbera (Bill Evans / Tony Bennett / Woody Herman) and guitarist Larry Koonse (Cleo Lane / Seth McFarlane) performing with her, you’re in for a treat.

The Houston Press: "If there's a choir in heaven, someday the exquisite vocalist Karrin Allyson will lead it. She's such an otherworldly talent that the creator probably already has her on heavy rotation."

Karrin is a New York City based vocalist, touring 2 days out of 3 in the major jazz festivals, concert venues and clubs of the U.S. and making repeated tours overseas - to Brazil, Japan, Australia and the great cities of Europe. Throughout 2014 Allyson was featured as solo vocalist in the 'Newport - Now 60' Tour which played in thirty cities across the US and Canada before concluding the 2014 Newport Festival.

After a jam-packed career with Concord Jazz - thirteen albums, four Grammy nominations, and the recent self-producedYuletide Hideaway that won four stars from Downbeat, she is moving on.

In May of 2015, as part of a new agreement with Motéma Music, Karrin headed back into the recording studio for a very intimate look at the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein, accompanied only by a rare and distinctive pairing of Kenny Barron on piano and John Patitucci on bass. “Many a New Day (Karrin Allyson Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein)” will be released on 18 September 2015. For Karrin, who once played Nelly Forbush in a production of South Pacific as a teenager, this album is a return to source.

“I've been all around the world musically, from bop and bossa and chanson to blues and singer- songwriters. And now, I feel like coming home. I find myself powerfully drawn to the world of Rodgers and Hammerstein.”

Among musicians, Karrin is known as a great bandleader and one of the deep pleasures of the current scene is listening to her highly developed interplay with her bandmates - it sounds so effortless - but it conceals a deep musical sophistication. It’s one of Allyson’s great achievements - the result of working over the years with an ensemble of fearless and powerfully committed jazz virtuosi. and the two have collaborated for nearly ten years as composers and performers in a very spirited ensemble featuring Caswell on Hammond B-3 organ.
