CalJAS Presents LOLLY ALLEN QUARTET November 13

LOLLY ALLEN

Laura “Lolly” Allen’s music “…conjures the lanky, leisurely feel of Milt Jackson, her roomy rambles open up the spiritual spaciousness of Walt Dickerson, and her smooth flair for Latin rhythms recalls Cal Tjader.”– Fred Bouchard (writer for Downbeat Magazine and teacher at Berklee College of Music.) 

She has been featured on radio and at venues including the Knitting Factory, Vibrato Grill Jazz, Boston Globe Jazz Festival, artist-in-residence with Stan Strickland at Boston’s Museum of Fine Art, WGBH FM’s Eric in the Evening and Ron DellaChiesa\’s Jazz Songbook. Allen has composed and performed in various ensembles including Gunther Schuller\’s Birthday Celebration Concert, Sam Rivers with the New England Conservatory Big Band, Maria Schneider with the Jazz Composer\’s Alliance, The Jimmy Giuffre Tribute Concert at Jordan Hall, the L.A Jazz Society’s Vibe Summit, and with Jiggs Whigham and Bob Mintzer at the Disney Jazz Celebration.

She has studied with many jazz greats: Danilo Perez, George Garzone, Cecil McBee, John McNeil, Bevan Manson, Steve Brown, Dominique Eade, and has received classical training with world-renowned percussionist Gordon Stout. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Performance from New England Conservatory.
