Karrin Allyson

8 pm., Thursday January 17 | $16 advance, $18 day of show.
Jimmy Mak's
221 NW 10th Ave.
 
[VOCAL JAZZ] Karrin Allyson has long been one of the more unsung jazz vocalists of this era. Mainstream notoriety is harder to come by when you don’t hit the low register quite the way Diana Krall does, or do the love-ballad thing in the same vein as Jane Monheit. Instead, Allyson’s forte has tended more toward the quirky song choice or the subtle vocal change mid-song, letting her smoky vocals paint a picture of a lovelorn woman, or sounding like a more subdued chanteuse when covering a John Coltrane ballad. Allyson grabs your attention in a more indirect way, but once she’s got you in her grasp there’s no breaking free.
