JACKIE ALLEN - Bio
JACKIE ALLEN - Bio Crossing over for a singer whose foundation resounds jazz was a relatively rare phenomenon back in 1994 when Jackie Allen recorded her debut album, Never Let Me Go. However, that didn't dissuade her from finding common ground between the jazz and pop music worlds. Twelve years later, with Tangled, her remarkable Blue Note Records debutâ€”and eighth CD overallâ€”Allen continues to explore soundscapes that pay homage to both standby and contemporary standards while crafting originals that richly complement the covers. With Blue Note, Allen joins a stable of pioneering female vocalistsâ€”Cassandra Wilson, Norah Jones, Patricia Barber, Dianne Reevesâ€”who appeal to both adult-oriented music camps.
