The Life of a Song was produced by Allen along with Elaine Martone at New York City’s Avatar Studios and features eight new compositions that explore the themes of family, motherhood and spirituality. The release also features three standards: Billy Strayhorn’s “Lush Life,” Bud Powell’s “Dance of the Infidels” and Mal Waldron’s “Soul Eyes.”
