Live at Birdland

New York City can be thankful for a lot of things, and the proximity of Barbara Carroll is, for jazz fanciers, high on the list. On this beautifully recorded live album, Carroll demonstrates her inimitable talents as a captivating pianist and charming vocalist. Working in tandem with two excellent supporting players -- Jay Leonhart, an inventive, alert, and exceptionally supportive bassist, and the ultra subtle drummer Joe Cocuzzo -- Carroll applies her magic to both standards and less familiar but equally deserving material (Cy Coleman and Peggy Lee's "I'm In Love Again," Harold Arlen and Truman Capote's "Don't Like Goodbyes"), fashioning each into a gem of heartfelt interpretation and concise improvisation. In her own understated way, Carroll is one of jazz piano's champions, with unimpeachable touch and taste. And her personalized way with a vocal is nothing less than enchanting. For lovers of mainstream jazz -- be they New Yorkers or those who lack the opportunity to catch Carroll in person -- Live at Birdland is a must-have.
