"You get the feeling that none of these singers would be here if not for
Carmen McRae, whose phrasing and interpretation were unparalleled"
"Of all the stars in the firmament, singers are the least understood. But when we hear gifted divas such as Carmen McRae, Lorez Alexandria, Etta Jones, Carol Sloane, Madeline Eastman and Rebecca Parris not only sing, but talk, clouds lift. Probing the intertwined questions of how and why singers communicate, director Joan Merrill gets to the essence of 'saying it with jazz.'"
