Exclusive CD Track! Listen to GRAMMY® Nominee Karrin Allyson Sing Rodgers & Hammerstein Hit

Four-time GRAMMY-nominated singer/keyboardist Karrin Allyson is preparing to release a new CD of Rodgers & Hammerstein hits, titled Many a New Day: Karrin Allyson Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein.
Accompanied by pianist Kenny Barron and bassist John Patitucci, Allyson will release the CD Sept. 18 on the Motéma label, but has made a track available exclusively to Playbill.com.
The 14-song collection includes standards from R&H Broadway hits Oklahoma!, South Pacific , The King and I and The Sound of Music .
Allyson wrote, "I feel powerfully drawn to the world of Rodgers and Hammerstein, because of the classic American stories and the gorgeous melodies. It's near perfect music."
She said, "I first got the idea to do this while watching an 'American Masters' program about Oscar Hammerstein. I was so moved by his personal life, such a decent man, who stood up for his beliefs... and wrote about them in his lyrics. (Yes-- they are so tremendously romantic too). I realized that now would be a perfect time to do these songs - innocent yet wise, hopeful yet nobody's fool, calling us ever forward to be decent human beings. Sadly, the song ‘You've Got To Be Carefully Taught," from South Pacific (a musical that was written with the intention to fight racism) still resonates all too well today."
Recorded at Sear Sound in New York City on May 1 and 2, 2015, "Many a New Day" has arrangements by Allyson, was executive-produced by Jana Herzen and produced by Allyson in association with GRAMMY Award winner Michael Leonhart , known for his work with Steely Dan, Bobby McFerrin and most recently with Bruno Mars.

Here is a complete track list:
1. "Oh, What A Beautiful Morning"
2. "Many A New Day"
3. "Happy Talk"
4. "I Cain't Say No"
5. "I Have Dreamed"
6. "Out Of My Dreams"
7. "Bali H'ai"
8. "When I Think Of Tom"/"Hello Young Lovers"
9. "We Kiss In A Shadow"
10. "You've Got To Be Carefully Taught"
11. "Something Wonderful"
12. "Surrey With A Fringe On Top"

As mentioned abouve, four-time GRAMMY nominee, singer/pianist Karrin Allyson, has confirmed the 9/18 release of Many a New Day: Karrin Allyson Sings Rodgers & Hammerstein. The 14-song collection features Allyson's romantic, sly and swinging take on songs that have become part of our cultural fabric, from ‘Oh, What a Beautiful Morning' to ‘Happy Talk' to ‘I Cain't Say No' and numerous others. The collection, which marks the singer's debut on the Motéma label, features the distinctive pairing of Kenny Barron on piano and John Patitucci on bass (only the second time the two have recorded together.)

Allyson will perform at Birdland in NYC, October 6-10. View her full tour schedule, here: http://www.karrin.com/events/

Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's legendary musical partnership is among the greatest of the 20th century, resulting in such seminal Broadway productions as The King and I, South Pacific, Sound of Music, Oklahoma and Carousel. With her distinctive vocals, Allyson takes an array of these beloved songs on an elegant, intimate and joyful ride. Her arrangements, impeccably performed by Barron and Patitucci, manage to infuse these musical theater gems with a spare, sophisticated and intimate vibe that recalls the wee-hours in a late night Paris jazz club.
