Event Details

Chicago-based jazz vocalist Alyssa Allgood has been described by jazz historian Scott Yanow as "one of the top up-and-coming jazz singers around today." She completed her bachelor of arts in jazz studies from North Central College, where she won the coveted Downbeat Magazine Student Music Award for Best Collegiate Vocal Jazz Soloist in 2014. She was named a 2016 Jazz Fellow through the Luminarts Cultural Organization in Chicago and placed second in the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Jazz Voice Competition. She was a top 10 semifinalist in the 2015 Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition, where she competed live in Switzerland for a jury presided by jazz legend Al Jarreau. Allgood's debut EP "Lady Bird" was named a Best Release of 2015 in All About Jazz and it was hailed as "the most refined offering in the genre yet." The Chicago Jazz Magazine highly recommends this debut recording and described it as "a wonderful exploration of the lost art of bebop vocalese." Allgood was applauded for the "delightful arrangements," "command" and "superbly delivered approach," which were showcased on the recording. Allgood is working on her first full-length album, which is set to release in fall 2016.
