Carmen McRae - Love for Sale



This segment is taken from a 1962 episode of the television show "Jazz Casual" and features Carmen McRae vocals; Norman Simmons piano; Victor Sproles bass; and Walter Perkins drums.

Carmen Mercedes McRae (April 8, 1920 – November 10, 1994) was an American jazz singer, composer, pianist, and actress. Considered one of the most influential jazz vocalists of the 20th century, it was her behind-the-beat phrasing and her ironic interpretations of song lyrics that made her memorable. McRae drew inspiration from Billie Holiday, but established her own distinctive voice. She went on to record over 60 albums, enjoying a rich musical career, performing and recording in the United States, Europe, and Japan.

    to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think
    about worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
