Picks and Pans Review: Jackie Allen

UPDATED 07/31/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 07/31/2006 at 01:00 AM EDT


Jackie Allen, who made her name in Chicago's vibrant jazz scene, possesses a voice that combines the expressiveness of Annie Lennox and the pitch of Rickie Lee Jones, while achieving its own bright, dramatic sound. Her major-label debut shows off her versatility on an eclectic mix of tracks; she's sassy one moment, tender the next. The highlight? "Tangled," a rock-tinged ballad that weaves its web with searing guitar licks.
