Inspired by John Coltrane's legendary "Ballads" album, vocalist Karrin Allyson puts her own personal and indelible stamp on the same eight, sublime ballads that Coltrane immortalized in his classic 1961 recording - which includes such standards as "Say It, " "You Don't Know What Love Is," "Too Young To Go Steady" and "All Or Nothing At All." As a bonus, Karrin also performs three additional ballads associated with the saxophone giant, including Coltrane's own haunting, masterpiece composition "Naima."
With an accompanying ensemble of today's finest jazz instrumentalists on board - James Williams, John Patitucci, Lewis Nash and special guest saxophonists Bob Berg, James Carter and Steve Wilson - Karrin's singing is also imbued with inspiration from the company she keeps. And she, in turn, clearly sparks and inspires the performances of her consummate cohorts.
With Ballads: Remembering John Coltrane - her most intimate and daring recording project to date - Karrin Allyson at once honors Coltrane's inescapable, lyrical influence, while making each song uniquely her own.
Allyson allows the music to breathe and stretch out, letting her versions run longer, with one exception, than Coltrane's. Jazz is about taking risks, and Allyson manages to pay a heartfelt tribute while putting her own intimate stamp on a classic recording. - Associated Press, Charles Gans
