May 2011 marks a milestone for multiple Grammy nominated singer and pianist Karrin Allyson and Concord Jazz -- the release of Round Midnight, the thirteenth album in a series dating back to her 1992 debut album "I Didn't Know About You."
THIRTEEN ALBUMS!!! -- That's worth shouting about. And that's just what music lovers and critics around the world have been doing -- shouting Allyson's name from the rooftops, marveling at the range of this extraordinary musician, who moves with such ease and authority from the Great American Songbook of Gershwin and Porter to the Great American Jazz Songbook of Duke and Thelonius and Miles and Dizzy, jet-setting to Rio and Paris and swinging back home to pick up Bonnie Raitt and Joni Mitchell and Jimmy Webb. What unites this wide world of music -- brings it together and makes sense of it all -- is Karrin Allyson's warmth and depth. She's not just singing a lyric, she's telling you her story. And then that becomes your story. You hear the music from the inside out.
