Every Carol Kidd album is noteworthy for the excellent choices of songs included and this CD is no exception. Crescendo and Jazz Music 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. Every Carol Kidd album is noteworthy for the excellent choices of songs included and this CD is no exception. There are excellent arrangements by Sandy Taylor of superior standards such as We'll Be Together Again, The More I See You, I've Grown Accustomed To Your Face and Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most. There are also rarely performed masterpieces such as It Isn't So Bad and a Pat Smythe arrangement of Trouble Is A Man and Mel Torme's amusing arrangement of I Like To Recognise The Tune. The supporting trio provides superb accompaniment throughout. I was particularly impressed with pianist Sandy Taylor, whose sensitive and sympathetic playing is a revelation in itself. Ronnie Scott considered Carol Kidd to be one of the best singers he had heard. "Not only is she technically excellent, but she sings the lyrics like she means them". Ronnie was spot on as usual. Peter Lund - Crescendo and Jazz Music - February/March 2004 In the last issue of Jazz Rag my old friend Kevin Henriques rightly took me to task for omitting Carol Kidd's name from a list of the best British female vocalists. Kevin, I have no excuses. Put it down to a 'Senior Moment'. This is particularly inexplicable as Carol Kidd is my FAVOURITE singer. So apologies all round. Linn have now re-issued three of Carol's most impressive albums, two of which' Debut and All My Tomorrows, I gave rave reviews when they were first released. Nice Work is another release from the same period. Here is what some other singers have to say about Carol Kidd: "Carol is the best kept secret of British jazz" (Frank Sinatra); "You should be world famous. Where've you been?" (Tony Bennett); "Her control is thrilling...she is world-class" (Cleo Laine). To which I can only add "Amen". My advice is go out and buy all three records ... then go out again and buy everything else Carol has recorded. OK, Kevin? John Martin - The Jazz Rag - Spring/Summer, 2004
