Every album from singer Karrin Allyson turns out better than the last one. This session is quite romantic. A little dose of that is needed in our lives occasionally, right? Whenever we start to take ourselves too seriously, it helps to have someone on our side, bringing us back to Earth and recalling the forces of Nature that make it all work. Singing in French, English, Portuguese and scat, Allyson works with an acoustic minimalist crew. In general, the band takes on a quaint French folk sound or a suave Brazilian dance aura, respectively, when accordionist Gil Goldstein or guitarist Danny Embrey join the small ensemble. If you have the opportunity to attend, Allyson will be appearing at the Concord-Fujitsu Jazz Festival in Japan this November. Highly recommended, From Paris To Rio is one to slip in the player when you’re in good company and have the time to enjoy both the music and your momentary good fortune.
