Singer Karrin Allyson brought sunshine to Seattle last Wednesday afternoon with a live performance in our studios.  

Allyson and her band were at Jazz Alley last week for the release celebration of her latest, Some of That Sunshine.  All songs on the album are originals by her or with collaborator Chris Caswell.   

Karrin, backed by pianist Miro Sprague and bassist Jeff Johnson, sang three tunes from Some of That Sunshine.

The session kicked off with the cheery title track. Next came the pensive, Time is a Funny Thing.  And she wrapped with her rousing call for gender equality, Big Discount.
