With her attractive, sultry voice, Karrin Allyson can deliver a song with intelligence and expressiveness while avoiding showy artifice. And she is adept at scat-singing as well. Here, Allyson and her all-star accompanists mine the angst of Matt Dennis’s “Angel Eyes,” one of the most poignant items in the American popular songbook.
