Allison Adams Tucker - WANDERlust Tour
4 stars DownBeat Magazine - "Mesmerizing, whether in English, Japanese, French…”
Multi-lingual SoCal vocalist Allison Adams Tucker returns to Honolulu celebrating the release of her third album “WANDERlust” (Origin Records) recorded in NYC under the direction of award-winning producer Matt Pierson (Brad Mehldau, Jane Monheit) and featuring a stunning all-star ensemble. WANDERlust journeys into new territory with jazz inspired songs that span countries and genres in 6 languages with stories and music from Björk and Christina Perri to Astor Piazzolla, Pat Metheny and Antonio Carlos Jobim to Ennio Morricone, and even ancient Japanese folk songs.
Allison's voice can be heard on national jingles and video games, and her interpretation of "La Vie En Rose" is one to the top downloads worldwide. She performs regularly in Japan, Europe, Mexico and around the US, and her Honolulu performance will mark the 11th city on the map for the WANDERlust Tour, among them Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco, and even the historic Blue Note New York. Allison's HPR show will feature Ethan Capone piano, Los Angeles-based O’ahu native Abe Lagrimas Jr. drums/ukulele, and Reggie Padilla saxes.
