5.0 out of 5 stars In top form! 31 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Recorded at the end of a two week engagement in 1981, McRae is at her effortless best on this live recording. McRae glides through standards such as "Secret Love". 'How long Has This Been Going On" and "Thou Swell". McRae makes contemporary musings of "New York State of Mind"and "Last Winter" are pure magic. McRae recreates the usually bland "Send in the Clowns" and turns it into an almost "aria-like" work of art. Don't miss out on this wonderful set!

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly worthy Carmen for collectors 14 Jan 2003
By Samuel Chell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're new to Carmen, start with something from the early sixties (e.g. the newly reissued "Bittersweet"). You'll not only hear the consummate jazz artist and song interpreter but a vocal instrument capable of producing lovely, sustained tones.
This album, a fine representation of Carmen's night club act in the 80's, not only captures her voice with almost overly "present" audio fidelity but demonstrates her uncanny sense of time and ability to phrase behind (way behind!) the beat. And as always, Carmen is in charge of the drama in every lyric, never leaving the slightest doubt about what word she's singing.
At times on this album--the beginning of the last decade of her career--I have the feeling that Carmen's expressive intentions exceed her vocal equipment, producing a few forced, even distracting, tones in the upper register. Also, the repertory is at best inconsistent ("Superwoman," "New York State of Mind," and even "Send in the Clowns"--at least without Sinatra--are some of the tunes that have not fared all that well with the passing of time).
