The "Dearest Bing" concept was not working for Carol Sloane? Intriguing!

I'd like to know what songs were not to her tastes and then try and come up with 'Bing tunes' that might work for her.

I love a challenge!

Also - what advice would she offer to female singers coming up in the Jazz world today?

Ivan Santiago

One of today's top jazz (veteran) singers, even if she is not performing and recording as much as she should. I wish that Carol, Sue Raney, Polly Bergen (all seasoned vocalists whose voices have also held up so well over the decades) were recording albums of jazz or standards once every year! (Hey, maybe Carol can get together with Sue and Polly, and do a sequel of sorts to the Japanese album "Three Pearls," in which Carol sang together with Ernestine Anderson and Chris Connor! Ha.) Anyway, I'm glad that Carol is recording a new album, whatever its concept turns out to be.
