Carol McCartney: Jazz

You Heard It Here First!

Well, here's the skinny. We've been in the studio, our old haunt Studio 211 at the CBC making a new record. (In fact, sadly, we might've been the last recording made there before they decommissioned it.) Like my last CD, we recorded these tracks pretty much live off the floor - which you can only do when you're surrounded by the A Team: Brian Dickinson on piano, Kieran Overs on bass, Terry Clarke on drums, Chris Robinson on sax, Lorne Lofsky on guitar and Mike Malone on flugelhorn. And at the helm, amazing engineer Dennis Patterson. Yep, that's what you call top-flight personnel!

We cut twelve tracks and I couldn't be happier with how they sound. I hope you'll love them, too.

Here's the scoop: the CD Release is going to be October 23 and 24th at the Jazz Bistro in Toronto. It will be two nights of classic jazz with a few twists. We're going to rock the joint!

And just for the record, the new one's called "Be Cool." And it is!

Hope to see you at the release gigs!

”A Night In Tunisia“ is available at CDBaby.
