Multi-lingual vocalist Allison Adams Tucker brings to the Blue Note an exciting sneak peek performance of her 4th studio album "RETRO" just days before it is recorded in New York, bridging the timeless generation gap with modern re-imaginings from the 1970s, 80s and 90s. In this show, she explores living in the digital age while maintaining organic, acoustic relationships with songs and stories that connect us, regardless of our birthplace on the map or in time.

Growing up in Southern California on the border with Mexico, Allison was exposed to intermingling cultures and her love for languages and world cultures also began at an early age. She has studied and sings in 6 languages besides her own, lived in Japan and Spain, and has traveled to over 15 countries. This "wanderlust" is present in the music she chooses today— with rhythms, melodies, and lyrics of Brazil, Italy, France, Latin America, Japan, and the US.



Allison's debut album "Come With Me" (Allegato Music) co-produced by jazz guitarist Peter Sprague (Dianne Reeves, David Benoit, Chick Corea, Sergio Mendes) and arranged by Kamau Kenyatta (Gregory Porter, Hubert Laws, Earl Klugh, Patti Austin), received international acclaim, was nominated for Best Jazz Album by the San Diego Music Awards, and continues to receive airplay on radio stations in 18 countries. Allison's sophomore album "April in Paris" (Allegato Music) celebrating songs of springtime from around the world, was recorded in Paris on UNESCO's 1st Annual International Jazz Day at the end of a 9-concert tour through Italy & France with international musicians and arrangers from five countries. Allison's third album "WANDERlust" (Origin Records), was recorded in New York City under the direction of award-winning producer Matt Pierson (Brad Mehldau, Milton Nascimento, Joshua Redman, Jane Monheit) and features a stunning all-star ensemble that not only bridges west and east coasts but adds flavors from around the world. Allison and Los Angeles pianist Josh Nelson joined New York jazz heavy-hitters Chris Potter, Mike Moreno, Scott Colley and Antonio Sánchez, along with percussionist Rogério Boccato and guitarist Romero Lubambo (both from Brazil) and French guitarist Stéphane Wrembel. The songs on WANDERlust are musical postcards from distant points of interest, from Rome to Paris to Takeda, Japan--and even destinations that exist purely in the mind's eye.



Allison's voice can be heard on national commercials and on the video game "The Saboteur" soundtrack singing French jazz in the company of Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Madeleine Peyroux, & others. This has resulted in a cult following by the typically "non-jazz listening" gamer audience, causing her interpretation of "La Vie En Rose" to become one of the top downloads on iTunes, Pandora, and Spotify worldwide.

Allison entertains audiences around the world, including performances at Ronnie Scott's London, Herb Alpert's Vibrato Los Angeles, San Jose Jazz Fest, The Jazz Kitchen Indianapolis, Idyllwild Jazz Festival, Hawaii Public Radio, Takatsuki Jazz Street Festival Osaka, Body & Soul Tokyo, Le Baiser Sale' Paris, Music Inn Rome, Lucca Jazz Donna Festival Tuscany, among others. "World jazz with urbane cool."
