KARRIN ALLYSON

Sunday-Monday: This New York jazz thrush and longtime Twin Cities favorite gets a little melancholy and moody on her first holiday collection, the self-released “Yuletide Hideaway.” Her premise is that Christmas is a place in our hearts and mind, not merely a holiday. Allyson — named the top rising star among female vocalists in Downbeat’s critics poll this year — chooses cool obscurities in Dave Frishberg’s “Snowbound” and Bill Evans’ “It’s Love, It’s Christmas,” darkens such standbys as “Winter Wonderland” and “Let It Snow,” and sparkles on two originals by her bandmates, “Christmas Bells Are Ringing” and “You’re All I Need for Christmas.” (7 p.m. Sun.-Mon. $35. Dakota Jazz Club, 1010 Nicollet Mall, Mpls. 612-332-1010 or DakotaCooks.com.)
