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.
