Barbara Carroll is an elegant jazz pianist, composer and vocalist who has long been regarded as one of the most fascinating purveyors of swinging jazz piano and expressive vocals. Whether Ms. Carroll is rendering a composition by Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, Billy Strayhorn or Thelonious Monk, her inventive piano playing and unique vocal sound insure that she will transform that composition into her own art – presented as no one else has presented it – with her signature emotional directness and respect for the tune and all of its many possibilities.
