Following Carol Sloane’s stunning sellout dates and live recording at Birdland in September of 2019, she was scheduled to return for a repeat Birdland engagement in March of 2020. Then Covid descended and live venues’ doors were closed around the globe.
In June of 2020, Carol suffered a stroke at her home in Stoneham, MA and remains in a rehabilitation center, now almost a year later. Always the one to “leave the door a little open,” she’s even remotely coaching the aspiring jazz-singer daughter of the facility’s director and is making plans to host listening sessions for residents of the facility, sharing music and artists who’ve been so important to Carol throughout her amazing career.
She welcomes your cards and letters, and while she may not be able to easily respond in return, your news, updates and photos mean the world to her. She asked that we share her mailing address, and hearing from you would surely boost her spirits.

Post-production work continues on the feature film documentary ‘Carol Sloane • A Jazz Singer,’ directed by Michael Lippert. Carol was able to view the complete current rough cut in late April of 2021. For more information about the film project, visit http://www.goingbarefoot.com/carol-sloane.php
“With all the talk today about new jazz singers, none comes even close to Carol Sloane. This is what jazz is all about.”
