With her remarkable twin disc recording, Feather/Step Lightly, Felicia Carter gives an affectionate nod to the double vinyl LP. The double CD format allows Carter to defy songwriting genres on Feather, while showcasing her finesse with traditional jazz and blues on Step Lightly. The album features a dynamic, all-star rhythm section of Carter’s jazz fellows; pianist Bob Butta, bassist Amy Shook, drummer Frank Russo, and guitarist Donato Soviero. Providing additional instrumentation are special guest players on harp, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, as well as Carter’s own layered vocal harmonies for selected tracks. The Feather/Step Lightly sessions took place in early 2007 at NPR Studios in Washington DC.
