Given 4 stars by Downbeat Magazine, multi-lingual vocalist/composer/educator Allison Adams Tucker began singing before she could speak, and has performed in many genres from a cappella to punk, folk, and jingles. In 2005 Allison fell in love with jazz and has gone on to release 4 critically acclaimed albums and 3 EPs: “Come With Me” (2008) nominated for Best Jazz Album 2009 by the San Diego Music Awards, “April in Paris” (2014) recorded in Paris on UNESCO’s 1st Annual International Jazz Day, “Wanderlust” (2016) recorded in New York under GRAMMY-winning producer Matt Pierson featuring an all-star band, and “RETRO Trilogy” (2023) again with NYC producer Matt Pierson and another band of heavy hitters, rolled out as three EPs “1977”, “1988”, “1999”, and then as one album.
Allison’s voice can be heard in commercials and on the “The Saboteur” video game soundtrack in the company of Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Madeleine Peyroux, & others. Allison has entertained audiences in Japan, Europe, Mexico, and the US, including performances at the Blue Note New York, Ronnie Scott’s London, Herb Alpert’s Vibrato Los Angeles, San Jose Jazz Fest, East Hawaii Jazz & Blues Fest, Lucca Jazz Donna Festival Tuscany, Takatsuki Jazz Street Festival Osaka, among others.
Free concerts at noon every Monday from fall through spring . . . no wonder the Mini-Concerts are the longest-running and one of the most popular classical music series at the library! This series was founded by Glenna Hazleton in 1970 at the Athenaeum, and has been going strong ever since. The concerts feature both local and touring musicians, prize-winning students, university music faculty members, local chamber ensembles. . . and the repertoire also includes jazz, folk and world music. There are no reservations, no tickets . . . just line up at the side door of the Athenaeum before noon. (Donations are always welcome!) Mini-Concerts take place every Monday at noon and last about an hour.
The concerts will be in person at the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. There are no physical tickets for these events. Doors open at 11:50 a.m. Seating is first-come; first-served. These events will be presented in compliance with State of California and County of San Diego health regulations as applicable at the time of each concert.
