Album Notes
World jazz vocalist Allison Adams Tucker celebrates the release of her second CD “April in Paris” – songs of springtime and new beginnings from around the world. The album was recorded in Paris on UNESCO’s 1st International Jazz Day at the end of a Europe tour, including international musicians and arrangers from five countries.

With a voice “supple as silk and smooth as cashmere” (eJazzNews), and “mesmerizing, whether in English, Japanese, French” (, Allison Adams Tucker creates a unique montage of jazz-driven melodies and rhythms in six languages that is turning heads. From Brazilian to straight ahead, French chansons to Mediterranean and beyond– ”expect the unexpected.” (Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene)

Allison’s voice can be heard on national commercials and video games, and her interpretation of “La Vie En Rose” from her album "Come With Me" is one to the top downloads on iTunes, Pandora, and Spotify worldwide. She performs regularly for audiences in Japan, Europe, Mexico, and around the US.
