||The ultimate Carmen!|
Great American Songbook, Vol. 1 CD music I'm a huge fan of Ms. McRae. This is what a real jazz singer should sound like. The musicians are amazing, lead by a phenomenal Joe Pass. This album really captures the atmosphere and the sheer artistry of Ms. McRae and the band. Definitely one of my all time favourites!
