The Traneumentary: Karrin Allyson

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. A few years back she paid homage to John Coltrane with the release of Ballads-Remembering John Coltrane—a set of the repertoire from the classic Ballads album along with a few added Trane inspired pieces. 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.

Excerpts featured in this episodes: “Lonnie's Lament," “Everytime We Say Goodbye" and “Traneing In."
