HighNote CD 7113
Carol Sloane has made dozens of albums, starting in 1961. Her work is admired by some of the greatest artists in jazz, and by discerning audiences here and in Japan. It always was. She made Whisper Sweet in April 2003, immediately after a six-night engagement at New York's Village Vanguard. In this instance Carol's focus was on the sort of tried-and-true standards on which she can work her own unique style of vocal magic. What resulted is an album of mellow midnight jazz: songs as familiar as old friends, performed by five musicians and a singer who know how expressive quiet can be.
