Carol Kidd is one of Britain’s best loved jazz singers, and one of her most respected ambassadors in the field worldwide. She has received favourable comparisons with Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee and has had continued praise from modern and traditional performers. These 1987 recordings, are typical of her work, features a spectrum of standards from the Great American Songbook interpreted by a legendary UK singer.
The now-legendary Carol Kidd covers several American Songbook recordings from the likes of Gershwin, Rogers & Hart and Ellington & Strayhorn on Nice Work. On an album of such quality material, Kidd proves that she knows her way around a song, recording with both an ease and flair that never seems forced.
