Aimee Allen
Winters & Mays

Aimée Allen – vocals Pete McCann – guitar Toru Dodo – piano Craig Akin -bass Jacob Melchior – drums and percussion Victor Prieto ? accordion

Street Date June 7, 2011



Jazz vocalist Aimée Allen?s new album Winters & Mays is that rare combination of soulful, sensitive, and swinging. An eclectic collection of original jazz compositions and reinterpretations of standards, it seamlessly navigates complex waters between bossa nova, tango, jazz, blues, and swing, with a few detours into pop and poignant ballad.


The warmth of Aimée?s nuanced, velvet timbre and the superb artistry of the accompanying musicians shine through every track. GuitaristPete McCann, pianist Toru Dodo, bassist Craig Akin, and drummer Jacob Melchior, each turn in masterful performances. Accordion virtuoso Victor Prieto burns as the guest star on three tracks, adding lush layers to already rich arrangements.


Pay special attention to Aimée?s original compositions “Second Time Around,” “Eden Autumn” and “Noah Too” (written for her nieces and nephew), “I’ll Get Along,” and “Stardust Reunited.” Aimée’s brother, composer and guitarist David Allen is the author of the rich, emotive ballad “We Are in Love Again,”  and co-author with Aimée of “That Day.”


Aimée?s inspired lyric to the Pat Metheny composition “Always and Forever” is also included here, with his permission, as a new title, “Love Aloud.”
