Carol Duboc Carol Duboc

Carol Duboc's new release, Burt Bacharach Songbook featuring three time Grammy nominee Hubert Laws on the Flute, promises to become a Jazz classic for the ages. After moving back to her hometown of Kansas City, from Los Angeles in 2008, recording a collection of Burt Bacharach hits seemed a natural fit for Carol. Both Carol and Burt claim Kansas City as their birthplace and as a songwriter herself, Carol has always admired the writing talents of Mr. Bacharach and his partner Hal David. Joining Carol and Hubert Laws is her all star Kansas City quartet including Danny Embrey (Sergio Mendes, Karrin Allyson), Bob Bowman (Freddie Hubbard, Karrin Allyson) and Joe Cartwright (Mel Torme, Karrin Allyson). Hubert Laws has played with the likes of Miles Davis, Chick Korea, Quincy Jones and Stevie Wonder and was 2007 flutist of the year in Downbeat Magazine's Reader's poll.

As a writer, arranger, and vocalist, Carol Duboc has sold over three million records and has worked with Patti Labelle, Tom Jones and Jeff Lorber, among many others. Burt Bacharach Songbook is Carol's fifth release following her four critically acclaimed albums beginning in 2002, and her big screen debut as “Pumpkin” in Be Cool in 2005, which starred John Travolta, Uma Thurman and Danny DeVito. Don Heckman (Los Angeles Times) declared “Duboc's singing has the strength and originality to quickly move her into the top level of jazz vocalists regardless of genre,” and his prediction is proving to be correct. In addition to the song “I Stand for America” which has been featured on CNN numerous times in a tribute to the victims of 911, Carol has been a featured artist on Smoothjazz TV which airs on NBC, and she has been an honored guest on several Best Women of Jazz Compilations along with Sarah Vaughan, Diana Krall and more.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
