The Audience with Betty Carter

Performers Betty Carter

Verve | January 1, 1990 | Compact Disc

Not yet rated | write a review
For Betty Carter, songs are vehicles for her talent. If something does not fit her conception of how her performance should be, then she changes it. Nothing is sacred; and yet, somehow, nothing is profaned. Standards from the Great American Songbook are reworked with seemingly dismissive ease. The album title is significant: woe betide any audience that risks not being 'with' Betty Carter. In command, on display, this tough, restless tigress of jazz overshadows her contemporaries, What is more, her statement that she can see no-one coming along to challenge her superiority, looks increasingly true as the years pass by.
