Singer Betty Carter: "The Audience With Betty Carter"


Betty Carter was one of the most individual and adventurous of Jazz singers. No less than Carmen McRae said that "there is only one Jazz singer.....only one and that's Betty Carter". A strong citation indeed. This live set recorded at San Francisco's "Great American Music Hall" is one of her very best. She feeds off the audience and the audience is enraptured with her. Her magnificent trio is comprised of the great John Hicks on piano, Curtis Lundy on bass and the dynamic Kenny Washington on drums. Betty presents her own tunes and a few standards with her unique phrasing and her totally original approach. "The Audience With Betty Carter" is in awe of her creativity and so will you be. Betty Carter tonight on The Jazz Feature!
