Who knew a lovely Scottish lass could sing the Great American Songbook well enough to garner the endorsement of Frank Sinatra, the Chairman of the Board himself? I sure didn't.
On the way home a week or so ago, I was listening to "Seriously Sinatra" on Sirius-XM radio. A soft, sexy arrangement of "Angel Eyes" came on ... sung by a voice I don't think I'd heard. Checking the dial, it showed that the singer was Carol Kidd, so I googled her when I got to the house and found a contact e-mail address for her.
To make a long story blogger-size, I got my hands on two of Kidd's CDs ... and have a date to interview her.
I like an artist who has enough confidence to add something different to a standard. And that's just what Carol Kidd does best.
Take a listen to her cover of "Angel Eyes." Close your eyes and imagine a smoky piano bar in Greenwich Village ... a woman who looks a little bit like Peggy Lee takes the mike. Now, relax and enjoy the next 3:36 ...
Check out my interview with Kidd and a review of her "All My Tomorrows" and "Dreamsville."
