“…a jazz singer to the core. She’s off to a remarkable start, a young singer of unusual accomplishment and extraordinary potential.”
-Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
“Allgood is an astonishingly mature singer for her years; her comfort with scatting and bebop phrasing, generous worldview in her words and skillful arrangements speak to an emerging talent of considerable strength.”
-Suzanne Lorge, The New York City Jazz Record
The Alyssa Allgood Organ Trio is a Chicago-based jazz trio led by jazz vocalist Alyssa Allgood, featuring Dan Chase on Hammond B-3 organ and Greg Artry on drums. The trio is rooted in the classic jazz tradition while bringing a modern flair to the music with original arrangements and high energy performances. They have performed at The Chicago Jazz Festival, The Green Mill, The Jazz Showcase and Andy’s Jazz Club.
Her debut album, Out of the Blue, was released in Fall 2016 to wide critical acclaim. It received a 4-star review from DownBeat Magazine and was named a “Best Release of 2016” by seven different publications including The Huffington Post and All About Jazz and a “Best Debut Release of 2016” by The New York City Jazz Record. Critics consistently praised Allgood’s instrumental approach and accomplished scat and vocalese singing. Allgood recently won the first Ella Fitzgerald Jazz Vocal Competition held in Washington D.C. in 2017.
