A fixture on the vocal jazz scene since the early 1990s, Karrin Allyson delivers more spirited scatting and lush balladry on 2006's FOOTPRINTS. Guest vocalists Nancy King and Jon Hendricks play a prominent role throughout, and the number of duets gives the album a distinctive flavor. ("Everybody's Boppin'," a track on which all three appear, is a highlight). Yet FOOTPRINTS is still Allyson's show, with her sophisticated phrasing and smooth tone taking center stage. The album comes recommended to fans of mainstream and contemporary vocal jazz.
