About the album

With inspiration provided by myriad jazz masters and the Los Angeles musicians she surrounds herself with, vibist Lolly Allen creates a warm, swinging, and jubilant set of music on "Coming Home." Opening with Horace Silver's "The Hippest Cat in Hollywood," she celebrates the LA jazz scene that developed out of the flourishing Central Ave clubs of the '50s. Surrounding herself with revered veterans of the scene, such as drummer Paul Kreibich and pianist Tom Owens, and young, vital members of the next generation, including pianist Josh Nelson and saxophonist Danny Janklow, Lolly delivers invigorated perspectives of the quintet group dynamic. Classics like Mario Bauza's "Mambo Inn" and Dizzy Gillespie's "Bebop" are paired with Allen’s originals, “Little Hummingbird” and the title cut, in a seamless blend of supple ideas and renewed approaches to traditional repertoire.
Inspiriert von unzähligen Meistern des Jazz und den Musikern aus Los Angeles, mit denen sie sich umgibt, kreiert die Vibraphonistin Lolly Allen auf "Coming Home" ein warmes, swingendes und glanzvolles Musikprogramm. Mit Horace Silvers "The Hippest Cat in Hollywood" feiert sie die LA-Jazz-Szene, die sich aus den florierenden Central Ave Clubs der 50er Jahre entwickelt hat. Umgeben von verehrten Veteranen der Szene wie dem Schlagzeuger Paul Kreibich und dem Pianisten Tom Owens sowie jungen, vitalen Mitgliedern der nächsten Generation, darunter dem Pianisten Josh Nelson und dem Saxophonisten Danny Janklow, liefert Lolly belebende Perspektiven auf die Dynamik der Quintettgruppe. Klassiker wie Mario Bauzas "Mambo Inn" und Dizzy Gillespies "Bebop" werden mit Allens Originalen "Little Hummingbird" und dem Title zu einer nahtlosen Mischung aus harmonischen Ideen und neuen Ansätzen zum traditionellen Repertoire kombiniert.
