Biografia

Carmen McRae foi uma das primeiras e das melhores vocalistas do bebop. Suas improvisações em scat e a escolha do repertório fazia com que cantasse dentro de uma profundidade emocional em cada momento lírico.

“Ela tinha um sentido musical para saber que, quando ela tivesse cinco tons para cantar, ela descobriria o tom certo vindo da sua cabeça e seguiria em frente” disse o baterista Joey Baron, que trabalhou com McRae.

Carmen McRae nasceu em New York no dia oito de abril de 1920. Foi um prodígio no piano; Carmen cantou na orquestra de Benny Carter em 1944 e com as de Count Basie e Mercer Ellington alguns anos depois. Durante esse tempo, ela também trabalhou como cantora e pianista no Minton Playhouse, lugar onde ele absorveu as idéias rítmicas dos boppers, que fizeram desse clube de New York o espaço de criação do novo jazz.

Carmen começou a gravar como líder em 1953 e continuou trabalhando para várias gravadoras e liderou diferentes grupos, por quatro décadas. Em 1988, McRae gravou um álbum especial, só com músicas de Thelonious Monk. Carmen McRae morreu em New York no dia 10 de novembro de 1994.

    This first time I ever heard her sing was on the Vocal version of Take Five by Dave Brubeck. One of my favourite songs and quite by accident, discovered he and his wife had written lyrics to it and Carmen recorded them.

"Make people AWARE of her- Sarah, Ella, Nancy, Dinah, Nina just to name a few, are whispered in the SAME breath. She's been there all along, you just gotta know where to look . . . welcome aboard anyway, maybe you can show us country 'bumpkins' a thing or 2, )x-(

    Glad that last.fm helped some of you to learn about one of the best jazz singers ever.For some reason she was not universaly known as Billie,Ella or Sarah althought musicians loved and respected her - there is a famous anecdote about Miles Davis who was upset about Ella Fitzgerald being called "Queen of Jazz" on some promotional poster - "hell,what is Carmen than?" said Davis. I dont think McRae was ever concerned with any of this "rating" business as she had her own faithful cult following and she never compromised her artistic sensibility - all of her recordings are very serious,high-quality releases and there is hardly ever a single wrong note on them.She didn't compromise,did not sell millions of records but kept her dignity and stayed true to herself (by the way,she was also a great piano player and composer - Billie Holiday recorded her song "Dream of life").
