Westgate Hotel - San Diego

Allison Adams Tucker

International recording artist and world jazz vocalist Allison Adams Tucker presents "Saturday Spotlight" at The Westgate Hotel's elegantly intimate Plaza Bar, spotlighting the finest in local and regional jazz artists in a unique theme each Saturday. 

With a voice “supple as silk and smooth as cashmere” (eJazzNews), and “mesmerizing, whether in English, Japanese, French” (GirlSingers.org), Allison creates a distinctive montage of jazz-inspired melodies and rhythms in 6 languages. From Brazilian to swing, French chansons to Mediterranean and beyond– ”expect the unexpected.” (Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene)
