With Blue Note, Allen joins a stable of pioneering female vocalists-Cassandra Wilson, Norah Jones, Patricia Barber and Diana Reeves. Produced by Chicago-based bandleader/bassist/composer Eric Hochberg (who also produced the Men in My Life), Tangled features Allen's core band of keyboardists Laurence Hobgood and Ben Lewis, guitarist John Moulder (whose multi-voiced six-string lines highlight the arrangements) bassist Hans Sturm (Allen's husband) and drummer, Dane Richeson. 2006.
