USA TODAY's Elysa Gardner has chosen Karrin Allyson's 'Round Midnight as her #1 Album of 2011, in a Year-End Poll of USA TODAY's top critics.
It's the latest accolade in a year of extraordinary acclaim for Allyson's stunning CD.
'Round Midnight has been nominated for a 2012 GRAMMY AWARD for Best Jazz Vocal Album, marking Allyson's fourth consecutive nomination in this major category. The Grammys take place on February 12, 2012, and Allyson will be on hand.
'Round Midnight (Concord Jazz) has earned vocalist/pianist Allyson the best reviews of her illustrious career and the widest range of coverage she's ever encountered, as the elegant, dreamy music was embraced not only by her core jazz audience but by mainstream, Broadway/Theater press, syndicated radio, web-based editorial outlets, regional television and much more.
