Steep in the traditions of classic jazz interludes, Lonely City from vocalist Allegra Levy resonates with authentic American swing trimmings and smooth blues grooves.

Lonely City 10. Our Lullabye 11. The Duet. Steep in the traditions of classic jazz interludes, Lonely City from vocalist Allegra Levy resonates with authentic American swing trimmings and smooth blues grooves. The pop ballad The Duet closes the album looming soft bass notes around Levy’s vocals as gently twinkling keys are entwined in violin swirls creating delicate silhouettes along the track. The frolicking cantor of Levy’s vocals is expressive sharing the impulsive nature of Regina Spektor to improvise along the vocal melody.

Dopo il debutto del 2014 (Lonely City, SteepleChase) in questo secondo disco Allegra cambia organico e clima espressivo. Tra i nuovi partner spiccano Kirk Knuffke alla cornetta, Jay Anderson al contrabbasso e Billy Drummond alla batteria mentre l'atmosfera generale non è più intimista e malinconica ma ritmicamente spigliata e ricca di groove. A questo proposito Neil Tesser, che ha vergato le note di copertina, nota che il sottotitolo dell'album potrebbe essere The Lighter Side of Allegra Levy.

Allegra Levy writes her own. From the plaintive title track of her boldly autobiographical debut album, LONELY CITY, to the haunting strains of her new CD, CITIES BETWEEN US, the 27-year-old singer-songwriter has penned a lyrical collection of harmonically liar originals steeped in the tradition of the Great American Songbook. Levy, a native of Connecticut now based in New York, has been dubbed a "double-barreled talent" by JazzTimes and was one of this month’s featured players in Downbeat Magazine
