On her most recent album, the highly acclaimed Many a New Day, Allyson sings selections from Rodgers and Hammerstein. Her current trio features  Miro Sprague (piano) & David Picchi (bass).

“A brilliant album that bridges the worlds of jazz and musical theater…Allyson may be the perfect singer to reinterpret Rodgers & Hammerstein for a modern, jazz-aware audience”—DownBeat.
