Betty Carter: The Modern Sound of Betty Carter LP (Verve By Request Series)

Verve, 1960

This 1960 album’s inventive Richard Weiss arrangements combine with Carter’s uniquely masterful – and modern - vocals for fresh takes on standards. Highlights include a lively run through “What A Little Moonlight Can Do”, inspired scatting on “On The Alamo” and a beautifully tender take on “There’s No You”.
