Carol and Nigel's live performances, honed over many years together, reduce audiences to pin-drop anticipation with their sublime musical rapport. This much-anticipated duo album showcases their single vision.
'Tell Me Once Again' features the dreamy Mancini-Mercer ballad, Moon River, established as a new Carol Kidd signature song at the Glasgow Jazz Festival in, up there with her trademark When I Dream.
This is the most personal album that Carol's ever recorded, both in terms of the song choices, which reflect different stages of her career, from the early 90's to now, and in terms of the meaning of the songs.
Amongst the many personal songs is one original track: Tell Me Once Again, the first song that Carol and Nigel ever wrote together following the sudden death of her partner.
Carol's repertoire, enriched by age and experience now includes the Stevie Wonder song Moon Blue, Burt Bacharach and Hal David's theme song from Alfie and You Don't Know Me, recorded in one take.
Kidd is acknowledged in jazz circles as "Britain's finest ballads singer" (Jazz Review). She has secured the Best Vocalist title at the British Jazz Awards on four separate occasions and has received the MBE for Services to Jazz.
Kidd is renowned for her impeccable phrasing and delivery along with an innate ability to breathe fresh life into jazz standards.
Nigel Clark has performed and recorded with Carol for many years. As a soloist Nigel's debut jazz album wowed the critics and reached the top ten in the UK jazz charts.
