Best Jazz Vocal Debut I had Heard

Jazzbro

I was a pleasantly surprised jock at Hawaii Public Radio one October night in 1990 when Karrin Allyson appeared at HPR with her mom and bassist Bruce Hamada for an interview on my then Twinight Jazz program. I had been playing this album for some time already. She was polished, personable and an excellent interview. I was knocked out by her talent, her aloha and her poise. This album should be a model for all those vocalists out there today trying to get their big break. Karrin has remained as fresh, innovative and warm as that first meeting. She has delivered more than a dozen albums in the ensuing years and I can honestly say, my ears, mind and heart have never once been disappointed. She epitomizes class.

They Say All Music Guide

This CD was the debut of the talented singer Karrin Allyson, a creative scat singer also very capable of holding her own on ballads. She primarily utilizes top Kansas City musicians (including pianists Paul Smith, Russ Long and Joe Cartwright, guitarists Danny Embrey and Rod Fleeman, bassists Bob Bowman and Gerald Spaits, drummer Todd Strait, cornetist Gary Sivils and flugelhornist Mike Metheny) on a variety of bop-based material. Among the highlights are “Nature Boy,” Karrin’s chancetaking duet with drummer Strait on “What A Little Moonlight Can Do,” a rapid version of “‘S Wonderful” and a bossa-novatized “It Might As Well Be Spring.” Karrin Allyson, who also plays piano on three numbers, shows a great deal of potential throughout her rewarding debut. – Scott Yanow
