"World jazz with urbane cool." San Diego native vocalist Allison Adams Tucker is not your average American jazz singer. With a voice "lustrous in any language" (The Examiner) and “mesmerizing, whether in English, Japanese, French” (GirlSingers.org), Allison Adams Tucker creates a unique montage of jazz-driven melodies and rhythms in 6 languages that is turning heads. From Björk to Piazzolla, Jobim to Monk and beyond– ”expect the unexpected.” (Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene)
Allison’s debut CD “Come With Me” (Allegato Music 2008), co-produced by jazz guitarist Peter Sprague (Dianne Reeves, Chick Corea, Sergio Mendes) and arranged by Kamau Kenyatta (Gregory Porter, Hubert Laws, Earl Klugh), received international acclaim, was nominated for Best Jazz Album 2009 by the San Diego Music Awards, and continues to receive airplay on radio stations in 18 countries. Her second album "April in Paris" (Allegato Music 2014) was recorded in Paris on the 1st International Jazz Day at the end of her last European tour. Allison's upcoming album project "WANDERlust" was recorded in NYC under producer Matt Pierson (Brad Mehldau, Becca Stevens, Milton Nascimento) with an international group of jazz greats (LA's own Josh Nelson with New York giants Chris Potter, Antonio Sanchez, Scott Colley, Mike Moreno, Romero Lubambo, Stephane Wrembel, and Rogerio Boccato). With this unique project, every track will be available in 6 languages. Allison’s voice can be heard on national jingles and video games, and her interpretation of “La Vie En Rose” is one to the top downloads on Pandora, iTunes, and Spotify worldwide.
As an international touring artist, Allison sings for audiences in Japan, Europe, Mexico, around the US, and is an active member of the local San Diego jazz community.
