Born: June 4, 1960    Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Jazz singer Alyson Green has gained recognition for her sensitive and unique interpretation of some of the great jazz classics. Jazz has always played a large part in Alyson's life. Her father was a jazz drummer and her maternal grandmother played saxophone with, amongst others, The BBC Radio Big Band. As a child Alyson would listen to Sarah Vaughan and Mel Torme Records while her friends would be listening to pop music. She first trained as an actress and singer, and appeared in many high profile stage,tv and film productions. She also toured the U.K with Glen Miller's brother Herb in the Herb Miller Big Band before forming her own quartet...

“Green is a sweet-toned storyteller whose completely unaffected style fuses an innate feel for the musical phrase with an understated delivery that quietly demands the listener’s attention. She brings to her singing a wealth of performing experience and musical savvy”
Peter Quinn : Jazzwise.

“Alyson Green is a storyteller and loves to dramatise the lyrics of everything she sings. Added to a strong, warm and resonant voice, it makes for a potent combination, especially when singing in company with a combo of some of Britain’s best. She sings with emotive warmth, making the lyrics tell the story effectively, as all good vocalists should but few manage to achieve.”
Derek Ansell : Jazz Journal

“Green was besotted with jazz from an early age via her father’s jazz drumming sessions for the likes of Mel Tormé and Sarah Vaughan. So it’s with a depth of knowledge and no shortage of talent that she shows her true range and subtle skills as a classy interpreter of quality pop and jazz songs new and old. With support from the cream of legit UK players like pianist Mark Edwards, cool saxophonist Ben Castle, and inspired guitarist Jim Mullen, Green makes even melodic rockers Maroon 5’s ‘Secret’ into a brooding mood piece, devoid of irony and full of integrity. Green is certainly a talent to watch for the future”
Mike Flynn : Jazzwise
