Internationally renowned jazz vocalist/pianist Carol Welsman celebrates the release of her 11th album, ALONE TOGETHER and her debut at New York's Birdland. The Canadian born, six time Juno nominee (Canadian Grammy) who now resides in Los Angeles, recorded the album in New York City, backed by an assemblage of world class players that include trumpeter Wallace Roney, bassist Rufus Reid, drummer Lewis Nash and guitarist Jay Azzolina. For this show, she will be performing with bassist Doug Weiss, drummer Adam Nussbaum, and guitarist Jay Azzolina. Whether on a recording or at a live performance, Carol and her musicians interact with the intuitive togetherness of jazz vocalizing at its finest.

"The songs sung and played by Carol Welsman are a thrill you can only feel and experience with awe but find hard to explain, like your first ride on a roller coaster," said renowned arts and film critic Rex Reed. "Blessed with so many musical gifts—taste, time, projection and a rhythmic sense of when to change chords—Carol's piano is beyond reproach, warm yet rhythmically sharp, giving her voice a perfect hammock of support to swing in."

Welsman has captivated audiences worldwide with her expressive vocal stylings, musicianship and dynamic stage presence. Fluent in English, French, Italian and Spanish, she delivers a mix of straight ahead jazz in a style that ranges from sensuous and warm to infectiously energetic. An elegant and sophisticated performer, this six foot blond beauty exudes confidence and charm and delights fellow musicians and audiences alike!
