  • A fixture on the vocal jazz scene since the early 1990s, Karrin Allyson delivers more spirited scatting and lush balladry on 2006's FOOTPRINTS. Guest vocalists Nancy King and Jon Hendricks play a prominent role throughout, and the number of duets gives the album a distinctive flavor. ("Everybody's Boppin'," a track on which all three appear, is a highlight). Yet FOOTPRINTS is still Allyson's show, with her sophisticated phrasing and smooth tone taking center stage. The album comes recommended to fans of mainstream and contemporary vocal jazz.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.75) - "[T]he singers, with assists from pianist Bruce Barth and others, set the words aloft." -- Grade: B

Down Beat (p.70) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "She stays within herself to create an organic approach that makes her singing -- as well as the new words -- sound like a natural evolution of the source material."
