ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pieces of Myself is a collection of original compositions of Allen's from over the past couple of years. Her compositions represent different pieces of her life as a musician, mother, wife, daughter and friend. Allen brought together the skilled Dave Baron on bass and Lee Fish on drums to make the rhythm section swing and yet at the same time flow amongst the ever changing feels and time signatures of the compositions. To add to this foundation, Allen brings accomplished musicians, Josh Evans on trumpet, Kris Allen on alto and Andrew Renfroe on guitar.
About Allen:
Allen has performed alongside many jazz greats including Nat Reeves, Steve Davis, Dezron Douglas, Charles Flores and Kris Allen. She has performed world wide with many groups including Kendrick Oliver’s New Life Orchestra, the collaborative New Unity Quartet and other jazz and creative music ensembles.
Allen has taught at The Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts, Hartt School, University of Connecticut Community School of the Arts Jazz Camp and Trinity College.
Originally from Foxboro, Ma, Allen was a cellist who started playing jazz piano as a favor to her high school band director, little knowing that she was finding her true artistic voice. From there she pursued her Bachelors in Music performance at the Jackie McLean Institute of Jazz. Allen has been privileged to be able to study under Jackie McLean, Steve Davis, Andy LaVerne and Garry Dial.
