5.0 out of 5 stars what a pleasure 18 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
at various times i get to think that "inside betty carter" is my favourite album of all time. betty is certainly in my top two singers (billie) and this CD proves why.
i prefer the slow slinky things on it but i never fast forward the uptempo's and i am the sort of guy to do that kinda thing!
this album is just wonderful. its complex, sophisticated, light hearted sometimes and sad at others. deep and soulful playing and singing and it has the sexiest track ever recorded "spring can really hang you up the most".
listen to that and you'll know how it feels to be "inside betty carter"

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute master 7 Mar 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Betty is like no other. This has been one of my favorite discs for years; of all her albums, this is the best showcase of Betty's versatility and endless imagination. We should all live with such concentrated inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars the masterpiece of a TRUE jazz singer 5 Oct 2005
By oiseau de nuit - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Betty's voice isn't what most people think of as "beautiful". To appreciate Betty's art, you got to get "inside". Before recording "Inside Betty", Miss Carter made a remarkable tour in Japan with Sonny Rollins. In this marvellous album she performs with a trio (wonderful Harold Mabern on piano, Bob Cranshaw on bass -Rollins' soul mate-, and faithful Roy McCurdy on drums). Don't expect to hear pretty nice songs. She's gonna sing you the blues, she's gonna tell you what life is all about. She is a jazz singer's singer, a lady who did it her own way, a Lady I miss a lot. Listen to wonderful "You're a Sweetheart" (track 14) or "My Favorite Things" (in 1'35 she's said it all)... Highly recommended. 45 minutes' happiness. Train your ears.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Carter's early adventures... 13 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Carter improvises with lot's of adventure, for instance re-shaping the song "My Favorite Things" and unexpectedly taking wild scat solos. In ballads such as "This Is Always" she is as tender and as saxaphone smooth as always slightly playful with the melody. This is an interesting look at Betty Carter, right when she became the improviser she would later be renowned for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Bob Dylan/Theme Time Radio Hour 13 Feb 2010
By Bonehead - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had not heard Betty Carter until one Sunday morning while listening to Bob's eclectic radio show. He played "Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most", and I knew I had to have more. It is very jazzy, jazz singing. Backed by just a trio on most songs, Carter is all over the scale, in a good way. Not like any other singer.

5.0 out of 5 stars What an introduction! 31 Oct 2004
By MrMcHooHaa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This was my first Betty Carter purchase, and what a great way to start... She was so versatile, and distinctive. There's a certain melancholy that occurs naturally in her voice. Can you believe I was introduced to her by way of the Cosby Show ?

She was incredible.

Michael
