Born Lillie Mae Jones on May 19, 1929, the woman who became Betty Carter was an American jazz singer known best for her improvisational technique, scatting and other complex musical abilities that demonstrated her vocal talent and imaginative interpretation of lyrics and melodies.

Representing Carter’s finest work of all, the collection is the perfect choice for both those new to this stunning vocalist and performer’s greatest music, and for those ready versed in her sublime and timeless sounds.
