• Southold native Allison Mann has released a new CD, “For My Mother and Father: The Best Songs of Their Times, Vol. 1,” in honor of her parents, Joan and Russell Mann of Southold.
Ms. Mann, who lives in Vermont, recorded the CD live at Christ Episcopal Church in Montpelier, Vt. Her parents were in attendance. The song list features jazz standards and selections from the Great American Songbook such as “Pennies From Heaven,” “Detour Ahead,” “I Concentrate on You” and “Over the Rainbow.”
On her website, Ms. Mann calls the recording “a prayer of thanks to her parents, who came of age in the ’30s and ’40s, steeped in the music of the American Songbook.”
Ms. Mann is director of Contemporary Dance and Fitness Studio in Montpelier. She also gives voice lessons in Montpelier.
She plans two more concerts in the series, both to be recorded in 2015.
