Vocalist and songwriter Aimée Allen is a New York City based jazz artist that exemplifies the creativity and open mindedness of a up-to-the-minute jazz vocalist. Allen is just as comfortable creating her own songs and lyrics as she is in re-imagining the long lineage of jazz standards in a current and meaningful way. Her original lyrics are thought-provoking and well-conceived. Allen has released her fifth album titled, Wings Uncaged, which contains eleven tracks, five outstanding originals and six creatively arranged standards. Allen’s warm voice is accompanied by: François Moutin on acoustic bass, Billy Test on piano and Kush Abadey on drums. Together they create a vastly different experience than the standard vocal jazz fare, that offers depth and reverence, while pushing the idiom forward. That’s the short of it!
