Aimée Allen’s latest release, Wings Uncaged features François Moutin, Billy Test, and Kush Abadey.  With a set of striking originals, featuring winged creatures as metaphors for surviving peril, and daring arrangements of jazz standards, the album has met critical acclaim as Aimée's most innovative to date.  Also includes a profound meditation on the current state of democracy, Democracy How (Harmony and Dissonance).

“Wings Uncaged is a vastly different experience than the standard vocal jazz fare that offers depth and reverence, while pushing the idiom forward. Allen will mesmerize you."

- Steph Cosme, stacotofy.com

Aimée's 2015 release Matter of Time features Romero Lubambo as special guest on selected tracks, with Toru Dodo, François Moutin, Jacob Melchior, and Scott Ritchie rounding out the quartet backing Aimée's rich vocals.  Aimée’s talents as a composer and lyricist are matched by dynamic arrangements, and standards are given new life.

"Breathlessly breathtaking, Aimée's latest CD places her firmly amidst modern Jazz' finest vocalists and, especially, vocal composers."    - Travis Rogers Jr.

l'Inexplicable

The fruit of Aimée's trans-continental experiences in music and her talents as a writer, this album is a collection of warm, soulful, jazz-pop originals blending African rhythms, Brazilian bossa, and classic American jazz.  With one exception, all the selections on l’Inexplicable were written by Aimée, and each is sung in French.
