If that is true, than singer/pianist Karrin Allyson must find it a necessity to be inventive: She appears to be always looking for new ways to present her music...taking chances that other singers either have not thought of, or dare not try. <br /><br /></p> <p>I kind of figured she was special when I first met and interviewed her shortly after she signed with the Concord label in the early 1990s. About a dozen years later, I interviewed her again, and she not only remembered me, but also recalled the contents of our chat. Again I was impressed.<br /><br /></p> Thu, 02 Jun 2011 15:05:00 +0000 Bob Perkins 2545 at http://wrti.org Bob Perkins Recommends...
