Allison Adams Tucker at the Carmel Valley Library on November 12
November's free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Library's community room. It will feature vocalist Allison Adams Tucker and pianist Danny Green performing songs of the Great American Songbook, a term used to denote the canon of the most important and most influential American popular songs of the 20th century - principally from Broadway theatre, musical theatre, and Hollywood musical film. It was written from the 1920s through the 1950s and includes hundreds of songs of enduring popularity. The program will last 45 minutes.
Allison Adams Tucker, a native San Diegan, studied piano, flute, violin, dance, and voice, and began performing at the age of five. She has a BA in Linguistics and Music Vocal Performance and ended up in the world of jazz in 2005 after having sung a variety of musical genres from punk rock to Elizabethan a cappella. Her debut CD Come with Me, co-produced by jazz guitarist Peter Sprague, was nominated for Best Jazz Album in 2009 by the San Diego Music Awards and continues to receive airplay on radio stations in 18 countries. She regularly tours the US, Japan and Europe, and recorded her second CD in Paris in 2012, April in Paris, which was released this June.
Danny Green is keeping the tradition of jazz piano alive while including cultural sounds and world music rhythms. His solo debut CD With You in Mind received extensive airplay around the globe rising to #18 on the JazzWeek Charts and won Best Jazz Album at the 2009 San Diego Music Awards. In 2012, Green teamed up with Tapestry Records to release A Thousand Ways Home, reaching #17 on the JazzWeek charts and voted into KSDS Jazz 88.3's top 10 jazz releases of 2012.
