Carol Kidd - The Very Best of Carol Kidd - In Tune International
30 April 2005In Tune International
What a collection. There's not a forgettable moment here. All are outstanding. To highlight one would do injustice to the others. This is a sterling sampler from her previous 8 Linn albums. I was taken by her delightful, intimate, relaxed programme of 39 mostly standards. Sinatra has said this about Carol; "She's the best kept secret of British jazz". She has the knack of seducing the listener. This marvellous singer of songs reminds me of Joannie Sommers and Barbra Steisand. She's surely a gifted voice of choice. Ms Kidd doesn't kid around. She's downright serious and commands massive international attention.
