Carol Sloane

Jazz Singer


I Never Went Away

by Andrew Velez HX Magazine

The contrasting opening numbers of this latest Sloane set attest to her indisputable place among the very small number of first rank jazz singers. Her spellbinding voice is instantly intimate and effortless in the cooed glissando line, "I see a million people, but all I can seeee is you."

Punctuated by the perfect Paul Bollenback (guitar), her warmth ever so gently carries you along. Merrily switching gears, she swings into "How Could You Do a Thing Like That To Me?" The melodies take wing as her voice dusts each lyric with the clarity of total understanding.
