Matter of Time - The Album

Often time itself is the only catalyst that brings about profound transformation.

That was true of Aimée Allen's latest release,Matter of Time. After Aimée's critically acclaimedWinters & Mays (Azuline Music) in 2011, this project formed, deformed, and reformed over a year and a half. It was neither effort nor circumstance that determined the contours of the album, but time. When the time was right, Aimée's new compositions came together seamlessly with those of masters like Jobim, Ivan Lins, and Rogers and Hart, and those of her contemporaries, master bassist François Moutin, and guitarist David Allen (Aimée's brother), to create a cohesive whole.

Matter of Time ultimately emerged a collection of highly original music about love and other transformations. Aimée's talents as a composer and lyricist are matched by dynamic arrangements, and the album goes from new takes on the familiar, to fresh vistas in uncharted territory. With Aimée's warm voice and soulful phrasing as the guide, this is not just any jazz vocal album.

Special Guest Romero Lubambo

This project began when Romero and Aimée met in New York, and like many a young singer, Aimée professed her admiration and desire to sing with Romero. After hearing Aimée's last release,Winters & Mays (Azuline), Romero agreed. From the first velvet whispers of his sumptuous harmonies, Romero's presence on the album shines like gold in sunlight. His tight, harmonically rich rhythmic melds with Aimée's hyper-expressive phrasing to flawless effect. It is a duo that leaves you wanting more.

The Players 
Romero Lubambo - guitar 
Toru Dodo - piano, Rhodes
François Moutin - bass
Jacob Melchior - drums
Scott Richie - bass (title track)
"Allen exists as a whole, self-sustaining entity. Her round, sensuous alto has only smooth edges with a caress of warm linen. Her songwriting is top-notch."
- C. Michael Baily, All About Jazz

"Truly an evolving and expansive vocal jazz artist ."
- Geannine Reid, JazzTimes

"A fully fledged composer, lyricist and vocalist, her ideas are filled with depth and meaning and her lyrics profoundly unique."
- Constance Tucker, All About Vocals
