Carmen McRae: Four Classic Albums (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)Carmen McRae: Four Classic Albums (CD: AVID, 2 CDs)
AVID Jazz presents four classic Carmen McRae albums including original LP liner notes on a finely re-mastered and low priced double CD. "Torchy"; "After Glow"; "Mad About The Man" and "Birds Of A Feather"

By way of introduction to the release by our latest female artist, Carmen McRae, here is a quote from the original liner notes from "After Glow" the third selection in our four album, 2CD set. "Every so often the public is treated to an entertainer who is in some way special-not merely talented, but delightfully unusual. Lovely Carmen McRea is just such an entertainer. A vocal paradox, Carmen’s extraordinary voice is at once strong and confident, yet soft and tender".Across these four releases you will witness not only the superb singing of the wonderful Ms. McRae but also her instrumental artistry.

All four albums have been digitally re-mastered. (AVID Entertainment)

Carmen McRae: Blue Moon (CD: Decca/ Verve- US Import)
In 1954 McRae signed with Decca, a company that knew how to exploit her versatility, spotting her wonderfully flexible voice on pop singles and albums, on jazz-combo dates, and backed by swinging big bands. The dates here, under the batons of bebop great Tadd Dameron and onetime Basie arranger Jimmy Mundy, were the perfect showcase for the maturing McRae, who establishes her signature burnished sound on classics by Berlin, Gershwin, and Strayhorn.
