Female focus // Shoulder to Shoulder:
CENTENNIAL TRIBUTE TO WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE

Karrin Allyson’s distinctive voice, without calling attention to itself, stands out among high voltage company, also redolent with a recognizable determined attitude that is an engine for this unique undertaking. A nod to rap done by the female performer known as Rapsody adds another modern spin to the wrap-up of the Allyson original “Big Discount” that slyly references the gender wage gap. This centennial consciousness-raiser gets my enthusiastic “yes” vote.”

Review by George W. Harris from Jazzweekly.com

IT GETS MY VOTE…Karrin Allyson Sextet: Shoulder To Shoulder

“While many of the songs are reflective of the ragtime era of the social change, the team of Ingrid Jensen/tp, Mindi Abair/as, Helen Sung/p, Endea Owens/b, Allison Miller/dr and guests like Kait Dunton/org are able to mix strings to hip jazz as on the thriving “Columbia’s Daughters” with Allyson in rich tone and delivery. Vaudevillian pre-jazz supports Veronica Swift on “Anti Suffrage Rose” while modal and free spirited modern grooves pulsate across on “I’ll Be No Submissive Wife.” Readings of anti-voting petitions by Kurt Elling or pro-suffrage Frederick Douglas by Belafonte put the movement in perspective, while Lalah Hathaway’s “Sojourner Truth” speech  and Rosanne Cash’s reflections by Susan B. Anthony being quite poignant.”
