O’s Notes: John is a talented actor, songwriter, singer, and pianist who assembles a strong supporting band to perform 17 originals. There’s the blues of “Until the Money’s Gone” with Jeff Kaye (t) and Javier Vergara (t-sax) adding sweet harmonies. They swing hard on “Hard Sell”, bounce on “A Typical Paris Affair” featuring Adam Bravo (p). Allee is pleasant all the way through crooning on “Truth Be Told”, and singing convincing pop, blues, and jazz.
