The Alison Crockett Group will perform two nights and four shows at SOUTH Jazz Kitchen on Friday and Saturday, February 1 & 2, 2019
Crockett has paid her musical “dues” in full… She is perhaps the quintessential nu jazz/progressive soul singer of her generation and yet you may not have heard of her – – but you’ve no doubt heard her voice… On seminal recordings by King Britt, Blue Six, Us3, Landslide, John Wicks, Mathematics and a whole host of others, Alison’s voice has provided the velvety, sensual sound of tomorrow’s yesterday’s…a captivating tone which evokes both the music of the past and that yet to come. A voice dripping soul with generous helpings of jazz, gospel and blue, Alison has taken the baton from divas of the present and past such as Lizz Wright, Rachelle Farrelle, Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Donna Summer, Diana Ross and Sarah Vaughn and forged a uniquely personal and singular musical vision.
"Alison Crockett's smoldering earthy and soul-drenched vocals have a way of unleashing deep emotion. A song in her hands is capable of reaching new dimensions as she seamlessly peels back layers of meaning though her intuitive and honest artistry..."
