Edinburgh Evening News
'Kidd's boldest departures, though, involved imaginative interpretations of the standards. Sweeping from a towering falsetto to hushed tones, Kidd delivered her evocative slow account of the Arlen and Koehler classic Stormy Weather over Clark's impromptu playing.'

Carol Kidd - Tell Me Once Again - Scotland on Sunday


17 April 2011
Scotland on Sunday
Alison Kerr
5 Stars

Vested interest declaration time: I wrote the liner notes for this, the first duo CD by peerless Scots vocalist Carol Kidd and her wonderful guitarist Nigel Clark.

Their duets have long been highlights of Kidd's concerts, and these 12 song shows why.

This is musical storytelling at its best, and a superb example of the scope within the duo format: along with several exquisite ballads, the songs range from R'n'B - You Don't Know Me - to a bossa nova version of Stevie Wonder's Moon Blue.
