Review quote from Albany Times Union | Freihofer Jazz Festival 25 June 2016
“In between, vocalist-pianist Karrin Allyson offered the most subtle set, effortlessly shifting gears from Mose Allison’s “Everybody’s Crying Mercy” to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught” to a syncopated rendition of Joni Mitchell’s “All I Want.”

USA Today: “Beautifully Nuanced”
NY Times: “She aces the tightrope walk of songbook reverence and jazz-vocal breeziness that often proves elusive on such an album”
DownBeat: “A brilliant album that bridges the worlds of jazz and musical theater”; “Allyson may be the perfect singer to reinterpret Rodgers & Hammerstein for a modern, jazz-aware audience”

» I’m excited to announce my new album ‘Many A New Day: Karrin Allyson Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein’ is now available for order on iTunes and Amazon!
This was a special album for me to record as I’ve been singing these songs all my life. I feel powerfully drawn to the world of Rodgers and Hammerstein because of the classic American stories and the gorgeous melodies. It’s near perfect music. I’m so happy to have these beautiful songs back in my life… and to play them with a rhythm section that’s truly a dream come true. Kenny Barron and John Patitucci bring pure musicality and so much heart to every note along the way. Hope you enjoy!!!
