Description
 
Carmen McRae is well known as one of jazz music’s most masterful improvisers, and is ranked among the greatest jazz singers of all time. She grew up during the swing era in Harlem, and participated in the transition from swing to bebop, playing with all the important musicians and in all the major clubs. Her struggle to fame finally paid off when she was 34 years old and began to perform with Tony Scott’s band. By 1955 she had signed with Decca records and achieved national recognition. By the end of her life Carmen had performed all over the world, recorded over 60 albums, and been recognized with numerous awards and honors. She died in 1994. “The definitive story of this great woman’s incredible life and legendary work.” Photos.
