Wild for You

After having garnered acclaim for her recorded vocal tribute to John Coltrane and a remarkable eight albums for the Concord label, Allyson ranks as one of the most creative and free-spirited singers now working. For her new release she takes on the pop songs that she “grew up with.” Here are tunes by the singer-songwriters that have lasted and held on to their popularity: Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Elton John, Carly Simon, and Carole King. Allyson has rethought the phrasing and approach to many of these, but the essential lyric quality of all remains pure. In addition, Karrin sings "Wild for You Baby," popularized by Bonnie Raitt, and "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress," written by Jimmy Webb and loved by Karrin in versions by Linda Ronstadt, Charlie Haden and Pat Metheny, and Judy Collins. Karrin and a group of handpicked players -- buoyed by pianist Gil Goldstein’s smart arrangements -- take these oft-played songs and give them a sparkling new life.
