Originally from Detroit, Allen’s apprenticeship, anchored by his lengthy tenure with Betty Carter, occurred largely in New York, where he worked with legends Lester Bowie, George Cables, Ron Carter, Louis Hayes, Frank Foster Big Band, Winard Harper, Dave Douglas, Cindy Blackman, Butch Morris, David Murray, Wallace Roney, Rufus Reid and Geri Allen.

In 2008, Allen began an association with Sunnyside Records to record his brand new trio, coined “the three headed monster” (Burning Ambulance), for I AM – I AM, featuring Gregg August (bass) and Rudy Royston (drums). The album garnered rave reviews from the New York Times (Ben Ratliff’s Playlist), Time Out NY (music cover), All About Jazz, Jazzman, Jazz Wise and Downbeat Magazines. Allen also appeared on NPR’s Jazz Perspectives, WNYC’s Soundcheck and WKCR’s Musician’s Show. Allen was also named “Rising Star” in DownBeat’s 2011 Critic’s Poll as well as a finalist in the 2010, 2009 and 2008 polls.

Word-of-mouth praise for the album led Lorraine Gordon, owner of the famed Village Vanguard to invite him and his trio for a weeklong stint. The engagement was met with relentless coverage from the cultural press: Time Out New York selected his engagement as its top musical attraction for that week; he appeared on NPR/WNYC’s Leonard Lopate Show; WBGO and the New York Times reviewed the historic residency, commending Allen for his trio’s “fearless approach to a formidable tradition.”
