Grammy® Nominated Jazz Vocalist Karrin Allyson Guest Stars

Grammy® nominated Jazz vocalist Karrin Allyson will guest star on The Bold and the Beautiful on June 28, 2006, performing “Unforgettable” the signature love song of Ridge and Brooke (played by Ronn Moss and Katherine Kelly Lang).

Allyson is a critically acclaimed fixture on the jazz landscape, having just released her 10th album with Concord Records, Footprints.  She received a Grammy® nomination for Ballads: Remembering John Coltrane.

Born in Great Bend, Kansas, Allyson grew up in Omaha, Nebraska. In school she became a serious classical piano student, eventually making it her major in college, where she first performed professionally, and paying tuition as a singer-pianist on introspective ‘70s pop including Joni Mitchell, Carole King and Janis Ian and a funk-rock repertoire with an all female band. She caught the jazz bug from fellow students and began to listen to Nancy Wilson, Cannonball Adderley, Carmen McRae, Billie Holliday, Dinah Washington, Bill Evans and Thelonious Monk.  Allyson became a fixture on the Kansas City jazz circuit as a great bandleader.  A New York resident since 2000, Allyson projects throughout Footprints the blues-as-catharsis principle that underpins the Kansas City tradition.

Allyson will tape The Bold and the Beautiful on May 26. Her airdate is scheduled for June 28, 2006.  For more information on Ms. Allyson visit http://www.karrin.com/
