Editorial Reviews

Review

Duboc's singing has the strength and originality to quickly move her into the top level of jazz vocalists - regardless of genre. --Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

Product Description

After vocalist Carol Duboc moved back to her hometown of Kansas City in 2008 she decided to honor Burt Bacharach, who was also born there, with this tribute record. Joining Carol is three time Grammy nominee Hubert Laws on flute along with her regular group of guitarist Danny Embry (Sergio Mendes), bassist Bob Bowman (Freddie Hubbard) and pianist Joe Cartwright (Mel Torme). Her writing and arranging success has included, among other things, the song This Word is All on Patti LaBelle's gold CD Gems, as well as the title cut, Precious, on Chante Moore's Gold CD. Carol also penned the hit single Never Do You Wrong for Stephanie Mills, and the song That Boy on Jade's Jade To The Max CD, which attained Platinum status.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and appealing sound October 4, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Burt Bacharach and Hal David and I am a huge fan of Hubert Laws and Carol Duboc. Hubert sounds amazing on everything he does and he really compliments Duboc's voice. With so many singers jumping into the jazz arena, it is refreshing to find a singer who does not sound like anyone else. Her style is unique and all hers. I love the arrangement on "Close To You" and her original song, "My Melody" is actually one of my favorites. I just wish I could find a video of her singing "Anyone who Had a Heart" on You Tube. I saw her sing this live in Los Angeles with Hubert a few years back and never forgot it. All I can say is I want a "Burt Bacharach Songbook II"!!

4.0 out of 5 stars intimate, emotive and appealing October 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Carol Duboc does great justice to Burt Bacharach with her tribute album of his songs despite a slight misstep here and there; her own song entitled "My Melody" is very beautiful and creative as well. Carol never skips a beat on these tracks with their somewhat jazzy, bossa nova flavor; this is fine, high quality control music and that's very impressive. Hubert Laws does a fine job on the flute on several of these numbers; Danny Embry, Bob Bowman, Tim Cambron, Luis Conte and Joe Cartwright don't sound all that bad, either! These musicians never try to steal the show from Carol; her voice is squarely in the spotlight which creates a very intimate feeling for the album.

Whether you're listening to "What the World Needs Now," "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head," "Wives and Lovers" or any other tune, Carol's voice is in excellent form and this thrills me to no end. Unfortunately, however, there are some parts of a musical arrangement here and there that don't quite do it for me; and that's a shame because Carol's voice is just so good. For example, ""What the World Needs Now" just doesn't sound one hundred percent right; the number is mildly disappointing perhaps because the music doesn't fit completely with Carol's singing, or maybe they played a little too much with the arrangement. "Always Something There To Remind Me" also comes up just a tad short in my book. On the other hand, at least I can say that the tempo and key changes do let Carol put her own stamp on these ballads.

"My Melody" gets the royal treatment from Carol who delivers this perfectly--what skill she displays on this track! She never lets go of a single superfluous note and I love it. True, it's not a Burt Bacharach tune; but it fits in with the rest of the music on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh and Sensual January 4, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I was leery when I saw another CD of Bacharach covers, but after only one listen of the CD, I was blown away by the lush velvety vocals from Carol Duboc(reminds me of Tierney Sutton). I have always been a Hubert Laws fan, and his solos and flute support adds great depth and he uses perfect restraint not to over power Carol's presence in the music. The arrangements for the most part are quite fresh, and I really recommend this CD to any Bacharach fan (which I count myself as also). I have played this CD over and over, a great musical achievement that Duboc and Laws and the band can be very proud of!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Flight Jazz October 22, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is some really good stuff! Duboc's interpretations of these Bacharach classics are rich and soulful. Having said that, if I had to pick a favorite, I'd have to say that is the only one she wrote on the album: "My Melody." On the Bacharach side, I really like the way she did "Wives and Lovers," it has a deep Jazz feel to it. There is some great piano playing on "The Look of Love" and Laws flute is flawless throughout the album. (If you like Hubert Laws, you'll like this album.) I really recommend this album to existing Duboc fans, to Hubert Laws fans, to any Burt Bacharach fans, and to lovers of Jazz in general. It's simply great.
