Classic Carmen
Joshua E. Hinkson Jr. | Mount Vernon, NY United States | 07/16/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album is a wonderful Mcrae performance. She tackled standard material and current material. She is esepcially wonderful on Stevie Wonder's "Superwoman" and Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind". Carmen more than any other jazz singer consistently appreciated current songwriters with wonderful lyrics. She translates music from any genre into the jazz idiom with ease. Her "Send in the Clowns" is great and so is my "Secret Love". What's the best bet for jazz lovers? Carmen Mcrae !!"

"(Note: this CD is really titled "Live at Bubba's," not "Budda's" as listed here on Amazon.)They say the older the grape, the sweeter the wine, and such is the case with Carmen McRae. It doesn't seem possible that any one singer could become any more better with age than Carmen McRae, and this album proves it. She inhabits a song like no other singer in history. Her virtuosity as a musician is front and center at this live and intimate show, where she reinvents traditional and contemporary songs into their absolute definitive versions. Take "New York State of Mind" or "Send in the Clowns" for example. I personally have never liked "Send in the Clowns" ever, until I heard Carmen sing it here. It's amazing, simply amazing, what she does with this tune. And the same can be said for every tune in this set. But the absolute high point on this CD is the luscious, melancholy and exquisite "My Foolish Heart." If this doesn't move you to tears, nothing will.... it's one of the great jazz vocal performances of all time. "How Long Has this Been Going On" is another definitive moment in music history available right here on this CD. Don't hesitate in purchasing this superlative work of art. This is Carmen McRae at her absolute best."
