ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jazz vocalist Alyssa Allgood celebrates the classic Blue Note recording era on her debut album Out of the Blue. Mining the catalog of jazz greats such as Hank Mobley, Wayne Shorter, Joe Chambers, Lee Morgan, Horace Silver, and others, Allgood reinterprets their work as vocal vehicles and presents the music with re-imagined arrangements and original lyrics that highlight the instrumental qualities of her vocals. Her voice is cool but expressive, and the maturity and nuance of her singing provides the perfect vehicle for bridging mid-century hard bop music with a more modern approach.

"One of the top up-and-coming jazz singers around today." -Scott Yanow, Jazz historian

"Radiant voice, soft but strong and coolly expressive...she sings with a maturity marked by restraint and nuance." -Neil Tesser, Grammy-award winning writer and critic

“It’s only a matter of time before her torch is lighting up everything everywhere. Clearly a new star on the rise, this is your golden opportunity to say you were there first." -Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“Alyssa Allgood is to be commended for tackling some difficult intervals and challenging jazz compositions… she’s pitch-perfect, as well as a fine songwriter.” -Dee Dee McNeil, Musical Memoirs
