SOURCE: Published:
Karrin Allyson Grammy-nominated artist Karrin Allyson has been churning out one great recording after another great recording for many years. With each album comes a new musical theme in which she performs both as a vocalist and pianist.

The album was not only successful but critically acclaimed. On this episode, Karrin shares the story of her first experience listening to John Coltrane as well as adds her perspective on his music and artistry from the point of view of a vocalist.
