Spotlight show • The 49-year-old jazz singer will arrive as a returning favorite of the JazzSLC series. Allyson grew up in Omaha and received a scholarship to study piano at University of Nebraska at Omaha. While there, she heard jazz for the first time, and it changed her outlook on music. "Jazz holds everything I find interesting," Allyson said. "It's soulful, intellectual, improvisational. It has humor and is introspective." Since, four of Allyson's albums (2001's "Ballads: Remembering John Coltrane," 2006's "Footprints," 2008's "Imagina: Songs of Brasil" and her most recent, 2011's " 'Round Midnight") have received Grammy nominations for Best Jazz Vocal Album." 'Round Midnight" was the first album on which Allyson played all of the piano parts, and her ability to play as well as sing with ache and melancholy elevates tunes written by Paul Simon (with her notable rendition of "April Come She Will"), Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, Stephen Sondheim and even Charlie Chaplin. "It's a late-night-listening album," Allyson said.
