ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Aimée Allen’s intimate connection with music began as a child. Her childhood was quite literally scored with classic jazz, because of her mother’s intense love of the music. The influence of the jazz tradition can be heard in Aimée’s musical style and interpretation choices. But Aimée’s listeners can also hear her individual voice, nuanced and sparkling with soul and sensuality. Singing came early for Aimée. But she first began to sing professionally as a college student. At Yale University Aimée was an active member and soloist with two a cappella singing groups performing a jazz repertoire. After graduation, Aimée lived in Paris and performed regularly in clubs and at music festivals. There, her understanding of the place of jazz in the world deepened and her interpretive style began to flourish.

The intense relationship between the francophone audience in Paris and Brazilian bossa nova, long one of Aimée’s musical loves, led Aimée to form a group dedicated to bossa and jazz: Les Bossa Novices. Aimée performed frequently in and outside of Paris with Les Bossa Novices.

As part of New York’s jazz community for the past few years, Aimée has continued to navigate traditional and modern jazz, infusing her craft with a personal and intimate style. In addition to selections from the great American songbook, Aimée sings some not-so-standards, pays homage to Brazilian bossa, and frequently includes a French lyric. Her touch is always sincere and her sound authentic. Her singular voice and soul has garnered the love of many of the city’s best young musicians.

On Dream, Aimée is joined by pianists Dave Cook and Toru Dodo. Dave brings a thoughtful and innovative attention to rhythm as well as rich, original arrangements. Toru accompanies with his classic lush style and a modern soulfulness. Ben Campbell joins with great musicality on bass, and Brian Woodruff plays drums with characteristic panache, great sensitivity, and imagination. Aimée is also joined in a duo by the inspired guitarist Richard Padron.

An outstanding CD. You will be captivated by each song on this album
This was truly an outstanding CD. The vocals are mesmerizing and carry the listner through a beautiful journey of delicately fused and well ochestrated musical peices. The artists voice blends beautifully with each performance eventually weaving a mutilingual masterpeice of sound that you will want to listen to again and again. I was particularily impressed with the portugese rendition of Black Orpheus. It was simply masterful. This is a must get album.

Great Debut Album
Aimee's voice has a haunting character that makes old standards new again. You've never heard a better rendition of Cry Me A River or Here's That Rainy Day. I think that she will only get better with age. And the band is just marvelous! This is an album that you will play over and over.

Fantastic!!!
I had no idea what I was purchasing when I bought this album, and I was more than pleasantly surprised to find that it was one of the best new female jazz albums I ever bought! Her voice is mesmerizing and wonderful, and the album is put together so well that I have listened to the whole CD at least 20 times in it\'s entirety since I got it 3 weeks ago! I will definitely recommend this album to friends.
