A Child Is Born is an album of Christmas carols by pianist Geri Allen with vocalists recorded in 2011 and released on the Motéma label.

Christmas albums tend to be a blend of the traditional and familiar with the style of the recording artist, and jazz pianist Geri Allen's A Child Is Born is no exception. Allen has a technically proficient, often elaborate style as a pianist, and she uses it in her evocations of Christmas carols and hymns.

The brilliant jazz pianist Geri Allen is on a roll: she's recently contributed to Terri Lyne Carrington's Mosaic Project, paid tribute to the pianists who have inspired her on the album Flying Toward the Sound, and released one of the most exuberant jazz albums of the year with tapdancer Maurice Chestnut on Timeline Live. Now comes Allen's take on Christmas music, A Child Is Born. She is highly religious and this CD has a full-on selection of Christian songs and carols
