(Concord Records)

Karrin Allyson has become one of the most respected vocalists on the modern jazz scene. Her latest production ‘Round Midnight is a study in why this is the case. The project is  a collection of beautifully-arranged standard pop and jazz favorites from the likes of Paul Simon, Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington and Stephen Sondheim. As much as Allyson’s vocal are impeccable, so to is her pianissimo. The inclusion of Rod Fleeman on guitar, Ed Howard on bass, Matt Wilson on drums, Bob Sheppard on saxophones and Randy Weinstein on harmonica contribute to making this recording even more fantastic.
