Alyssa Allgood (Jazz) 7:30-10:30pm
American singer and pianist, Dinah Washington has been called “the most popular black female recording artist of the ’50s”. Primarily a jazz vocalist, she performed and recorded in a wide variety of styles including Blues, R&B and Pop and gave herself the title of “Queen of the Blues”. She had nearly thirty top 10 R&B hits during the 1950’s, culminating with Top 10 pop hits such as “What A Difference A Day Made and “Unforgettable” as well as “Baby (You’ve Got What It Takes)” and “A Rockin’ Good Way (To Mess Around and Fall in Love) with Brooke Benton. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993.
Chicago-based jazz vocalist Alyssa Allgood has been recognized as an artist who “impressively sings, scats and writes original lyrics” (DownBeat Magazine).
“When she stretched phrases, elongated words, rewrote rhythms and remade melody lines, you knew she was a jazz singer to the core…she’s off to a remarkable start, a young singer of unusual accomplishment and extraordinary potential.”
