Carol Kidd – Debut


Carol Kidd’s debut album confirmed her status as a leading jazz singer of modern times and marked the beginning of a career spanning three decades. Carol remains a popular performer in the UK and worldwide, performing sell-out concerts in Jakarta, Bali, Singapore and most recently China in 2007. She was a particular favourite of the late Ronnie Scott. In recent years jazz legends such as George Chisholm, Buck Clayton, Eddie Thomson, Humphrey Lyttelton, Cliff Hardie, Bob Brookmeyer and Martin Taylor have been pleased to work alongside and enthuse about Carol’s singing.

Recorded in 1984, this title features standards such as The More I See You and We’ll Be Together Again, plus a witty Mel Torme arrangement of I Like To Recognise The Tune. Carol is supported by her excellent trio, whose long-standing collaboration ensures sensitive and instinctive performances.

Her best known admirers include Frank Sinatra, who personally invited her to open for him at his Scottish shows, and Tony Bennett who, following a live performance, enthused to Carol: “Where have you been?! You should be world famous!”
