MUSIC | FATHER’S DAY JAZZ BRUNCH | SUNDAY 17 JUNE

Treat your father to a delicious brunch made by the ‘Feasting House’ of Ottery St Mary, The Rusty Pig, whilst listening to Californian jazz vocalist Allison Adams-Tucker.

Father's Day Brunch

Allison is an internationally acclaimed artist and has entertained audiences in Japan, Europe, Mexico, and the US, including performances at the Blue Note in New York, Ronnie Scott’s, and Herb Alpert’s Vibrato in Los Angeles. Allison will be joined by her London jazz quartet for this special event.

Allison‘s vocal range has been coloured by her experience in a variety of musical genres throughout her life, from classical to punk rock and even a cappella Elizabethan madrigals; in 2005 she found her home in jazz.

Allison‘s third and latest album WANDERlust was recorded in NYC under award-winning producer Matt Pierson (Brad Mehldau, Jane Monheit), features a stunning all-star ensemble, and received critical acclaim. WANDERlust journeys into new territory with stories and music from Björk and Christina Perri to Astor Piazzolla, Pat Metheny and Antonio Carlos Jobim to Ennio Morricone, and even ancient Japanese folk songs, touted “Killer stuff from a true rising star” by Midwest Record.

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 SimoneElla FitzgeraldMadeleine Peyroux, and others. This has resulted in a cult following by a typically “non-jazz listening” gamer audience, pushing her interpretation of “La Vie En Rose” into the top downloads on iTunes, Pandora, and Spotify worldwide.

‘Light and buoyant, her voice is remarkably fresh, its purity underscored by considerable depth and sagely shaded hues, suggesting Tierney Sutton by way of Karen Carpenter.’  – Jazz Times
