Saturday, January 13- Jackie Allen with Hans Sturm & Tom Larson

Jackie Allen is an American jazz vocalist, composer, and educator. She has released twelve records as a leader for labels such as Blue Note Records, Naxos Records, A440 Music Group, and Avant Bass.

Influenced by jazz, folk, and pop singers, Allen is perhaps best known for interpretations classic jazz ballads ("bringing out the beauty of the lyrics" -Scott Yannow, All Music Guide) and transformation of contemporary tunes ("her gift with more pop-oriented material is utterly distinctive and even innovative, since there isn't another singer out there who phrases like her" -Thom Jurek, All Music Guide).

Rose Fingered Dawn is Jackie’s newest CD, released in October 2017.
It features ten tunes written for Jackie by Hans Sturm, performed by her working band and a three-horn section. 
“Allen’s vocals cradle the lyrics gingerly. Rose Fingered Dawn is a culmination of her influences and experiences, favoring songs that move audiences emotionally and ultimately, profoundly.”
