Carol Welsman at Birdland

Carol Welsman is a Canadian jazz vocalist and pianist. She is the granddaughter of conductor/composer Frank Welsman and the sister of composer John Welsman. She has been nominated 5 times for the Juno Award.

In 1995 she issued her first CD “Lucky to be me”, with jazz standards and her own song “This Lullaby”, which she presented on September 11, 2004 on the Larry King show commemorating the 3rd anniversary of 9/11. The song was also adopted by Celine Dion on her 2004 “Miracle” CD as “Baby, Close Your Eyes”. Welsman also wrote lyrics for Ray Charles, and Nicole Scherzinger of The Pussycat Dolls. Together with Herbie Hancock she co-hosted the 2000 Billboard Jazz Awards.

Her performance at Birdland contained songs from her newest album “Alone Together.” The lush songstress included a superb selection which included Sammy Cahn’s “Day By Day,” Rodgers & Hammerstein’s “It Might As Well Be Spring,” Duke Ellington’s “I Didn’t Know About You” and of course, the Arthur Schwartz/Howard Dietz 1932 title song, “Alone Together.”
