Boston 2015 [no label, 2CD]

Live at Sculler’s, Allston, Boston, MA; April 17, 2015. Very WGBH-HD-FM Boston broadcast.

The New York Times called jazz vocalist Karrin Allyson a “singer with a feline touch and impeccable intonation.”

In May of 2015, as part of a new agreement with Motema Records, Karrin heads back into the recording studio for a very intimate look at the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein. For Karrin, who actually played Nelly Forbush in a production of South Pacific as a teenager, this album is a return. “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.”

“Why? Well, the tunes for starters, gorgeous melodies, near perfect lyrics, music that begs to be sung. Music filled with innocence, optimism, a confident can-do response to any problem, an appealing wiseguy humor, a sense that we all belong together on this wonderful planet. So, Rodgers & Hammerstein in very spare, honest settings - just a singer, telling the story…” - The Houston Press

Thanks to zootype for sharing the show at Dime.

Thanks also to hermelin for the artwork.
