WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In the music of Geri Allen we hear a passionate intensity, rich with the sense of growth and possibility. It is music driven by the desire to honor those who came before; and a disciplined devotion to forging new paths through her playing and writing. She herself has said that "this music is about change. That is its focal point -- having the courage to believe in your own voice." Her solos and her compositions inspire a feeling of safety while also expressing the tension of her adventurous spirit.
