5.0 out of 5 stars Music of the Highest Order, 30 April 2009
This review is from: The Audience With Betty Carter (Audio CD)
As Stuart Nicholson says in The Essential Jazz Records Vol.2 'This is a performance which soars.... It is quite simply jazz of the highest order and that is enough. To say that this is one of the finest jazz 'vocal' performances on record is limiting because it is among the greatest contemporary albums of jazz.'

The understanding and interplay between Betty Carter and the trio (John Hicks, Kenneth Washington & Curtis Lundy) is straight out of the top draw. The material is well arranged, with tempi changes and open ended sections which need split second reactions and musicality. Her voice is at its best. This truly is a must buy album!
