Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club Features 5x-GRAMMY® Award Nominated Jazz Vocalist KARRIN ALLYSON on Friday January 14 at 7:30 P.M. Karrin Allyson is widely recognized as one of the most gifted voices of her generation. With fifteen albums under her belt, she has built a mastery of The Great American Songbook, Blues, Pop, Be-Bop, Brazilian, and French Chansons, to name a few.

  • THE SEATTLE TIMES raves, “She is hands-down one of the best vocalists in jazz, working at the very top of her game…”
  • THE NEW YORK TIMES has called her a “singer with a feline touch and impeccable intonation” and the “jazz equivalent to Bonnie Raitt”
  • DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE declares, “Like Sarah Vaughan and Carmen McRae, magical moments occur in Allyson’s live sets…”
  • THE WALL STREET JOURNAL claims, “Karrin Allyson has chops, but more important, she has taste and restraint—one gets the distinct impression that she could belt a lot louder and higher than she generally does. Instead, she sings with amazing subtlety…”

Allyson has received “Best Jazz Vocal Album” GRAMMY® Award Nominations for 2001’s ‘Ballads: Remembering John Coltrane’, 2006’s ‘Footprints’, 2007’s ‘Imagina: Songs of Brasil’, 2011’s ‘Round Midnight’, and 2015’s ‘Many a New Day: Karrin Allyson Sings Rodgers and Hammerstein’. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS called her ‘Many a New Day’ album, “Masterful.” And DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE raved, “A brilliant album…”

“Karrin Allyson is one of the top jazz vocalists of her generation and we look forward to having her grace the stage at Jimmy’s,” said Suzanne Bresette, Managing Director of Programming at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club. “Karrin’s commitment to consistently – and successfully – evolve and challenge herself as an artist is admirable. It will be such a pleasure to have her live and in-person at Jimmy’s Jazz & Blues Club.”
