Vocal Jazz


Carmen McRae was a magnificent composer, vocalist and pianist whose talents were both under-rated and under-appreciated. Indisputably, her legacy lives on as one of the greatest female artists and a five star legendary performer. Her behind-the-beat phrasing style and her ironic interpretations of song lyrics were memorable. Absolutely one of the most influential female jazz vocalists of all time.
