Carol Kidd is widely considered to be a singer’s singer. She has been described by Frank Sinatra as “the best kept secret in British Jazz”. While Tony Bennett was prompted to say “you should be world-famous, where’ve you been?” Cleo Laine, who should know about these things, has commented, “her control is thrilling…. She is world class”. This re-issue debut album, originally recorded in 1984, is ample proof that Carol Kidd is indeed an exceptional talent. She has a voice of outstanding beauty, marvellous diction and perfect pitch combined with impeccable jazz feeling.
