Hey music lovin’ friends – How time flies! It’s been 4 years since my last album, and it’s time to go back in the studio for my fourth album. Please help make this happen! In this crazy new world of free (or nearly free) digital music and self-funded independent art, I’m relying on you and am so grateful.

Time always flies FORWARD, but you know how a song can instantly bring you BACK to a place, a smell, a feeling, a taste, a scene from your past, all in technicolor… A birthday party, your first breakup, the wedding day, the birth of your child, your grandma’s smile… That song unites people across borders of time and space and can make those memories real again and again. We all have these music Stories!

Allison is going “RETRO”! I’m going back to my musical roots with a 3–part album Trilogy as I explore the music connected to those memories that define a generation – Generation X. These will be modern jazz re–imaginings from 3 decades of music we all love: the 1970s, 1980s & 1990s. I’m exploring how the power of this generationally-seasoned music makes us who we are today, and I’d love you to join in the journey!

Trilogy – 3 EPs = 1 CD: Each decade of 6 songs will be released separately as an EP across streaming and digital platforms (1970s, 1980s, & 1990s Editions), ending with 18 total songs. 15 selected songs will be on the final RETRO collection CD. There’s also going to be Limited Edition (color) vinyl pressings for all you retro lovers!

Everyone who pre-orders on PledgeMusic will get the 3 EP digital collection before the first EP is released, and a few bonus songs will only be available on streaming and vinyl, so please PRE-ORDER to get the full songlist and to keep up on the releases and project details as they unfold. I’ve created some super groovy offerings that I hope will entertain you as well.

Cool Store Offerings – Share your Story: With each decade EP, I plans to showcase and post to social media real-life Stories of musical memories created by YOU the listeners! See the Store below for this offering and others. House Concerts, Your Name in the CD liner notes, Dinner Party with Chef Allison cooking for you Gen X style, wine and cheese listening party, singing telegrams…. lots to choose from.

I’m going to New York City this January… I’ve booked the plane ticket from sunny California, and the studio time in (wintery) NYC to record another album under producer Matt Pierson with a kickbutt lineup of musicians. I’ll be sharing with you throughout the process as we rehearse, as we perform the project live for the first time at the Blue Note NYC (Sunday January 6), and then go into the studio to lay down the tracks January 14-17.

January in New York is a crazy time when performers and jazz artists from around the world come together for performer conferences, Jazz Congress and Winter Jazz Fest, and this will bring some powerful mojo to the songs!

Check out the BAND:
Kevin Hays, keys/piano
Tony Scherr bass/guitars
Kenny Wollesen drums/percussion/vibraphone
Yotam Silberstein, guitar
Surprise guest artists!

The song list is selected, and I have some super hip arrangements by Josh Nelson, Danny Green, and Kevin Hays that will magically take form in the studio. (Love that part!) Some of the artists to be covered on this project are: David Bowie, Cat Stevens, Tears For Fears, Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel, Sting, Gipsy Kings, Beck, Prince, Annie Lennox… Fun stuff, and talk about bringing back memories! I’ll be uploading a couple of tracks as soon as they’re finished.

Making an album is very expensive these days as many of us fly solo… Music arrangements, musicians, studio time, mixing/mastering, producer fees, travel, accommodations, CD duplications, royalty costs, distribution costs, publicity, marketing/promotion, touring costs, and then there are the everyday living expenses while I’m doing this… The list is long, but I have faith in the music and in YOU to keep the music flowing! It’s all worth the risk. However you choose to interact on this project, I totally appreciate it and promise it will take you BACK to some great memories. Thank you!

Peace & Music,
Allison
