Editorial Reviews

This CD presents the two albums The Barbara Carroll Trio recorded for the Verve label in 1957. On the first, "Barbara," she confines herself to piano on a selection of familiar standards, with a strong leaning towards slow ballads. Relaxed and refreshingly at ease, she leisurely explores the tonal colours suggested by the material in a reflective approach to trio playing. On the up-tempo tunes, Mine and Acquaintance, the bassist Joe Shulman's strength and intelligence is evident, while drummer Bill Faite's brushwork is a model of good taste. The second album presents six songs from "Funny Face," along with six from several Gershwin shows. This set contains a pair of nicely off-hand vocals, Who Cares?, and a lightly swinging version of 'S Wonderful that she sings much in the sophisticated style of Bobby Troup. With Joe Shulman on bass, and Joe Petti on drums, the trio s approach displays a blend of imagination, taste, touch, and swing. And though Barbara Carroll was by no means an innovator or trailblazer, she was a talented performer with a distinctive musical personality that enabled her to do justice to her repertoire and communicate musically with the listeners attractive and hardly minor gifts at any level of music.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Barbara Carroll is an extremely talented jazz pianist. I have several CDs on which she plays accompaniment or with other musicians. I liked her playing so much on those CDs that I wanted to find a CD of just her playing and not singing. This CD only has 2 tracks where she sings, but I just don't like the song selection or the arrangements - they just aren't very pretty to me and my particular tastes. I'm not that old and I like more modern arrangements. The recordings on this CD are very old which is probably why I'm having a problem. If you're a die-hard Barbara Carroll fan, then this will be a good CD to add to your collection. But if you're looking for a CD filled with more-modern sounding jazz piano arrangements, I'd pass on this one.
