Synopsis

Album Description
Arguably the most adventurous female jazz singer of all time, Betty Carter was an idiosyncratic stylist and a restless improviser who pushed the limits of melody and harmony as much as any bebop horn player. The husky voiced Carter was capable of radical, off the cuff reworkings of whatever she sang, abruptly changing tempos and dynamics, or rearranging the lyrics into distinctive, off the beat rhythmic patterns. She could solo for 20 minutes, scat at lightening speed, or drive home an emotion with wordless, bluesy moans and sighs. Originally recorded in New York City (1958), and features 12 total tracks. Blue Moon. 2005.
