Photo Coverage: Barbara Carroll Duo Play Birdland

Most Saturdays at 6PM good dinning and good jazz are the mix at Birdland, where Barbara Carroll and Jay Leonhart supply the music and Gianni Valenti supplies the food.

Her "jazz pianism is the subtlest and most intricate New York has to offer." (New Yorker) Barbara Carroll's inventive piano playing and unique vocal sound transforms any composition into something hip and urbane. In a sixty-year career she has gone from being dubbed "the first girl ever to play bebop piano" by Leonard Feather in 1947, to today being dubbed a "singer who turns song lyrics into personal dramatic monologues." (Stephen Holden, New York Times)
