Verve Records releases the latest editions in its breakout Great Women of Song series, which pays homage to the ground-breaking work and lasting impact of some of the greatest female vocalists of all time.

Like her idol Billie Holiday, Carmen McRae could own a ballad and make it her own. She could also swing every bit as hard as her other main influence, Ella Fitzgerald. Coming up during the bebop era, under the musical sway of Thelonious Monk, Carmen made a series of recordings for the Decca label that would cement her reputation and launch her career.

Whether in small groups or backed by a studio orchestra, Carmen McRae recorded definitive versions of songs that make up the backbones of jazz and the Great American Songbook. Highlights include "How Long Has This Been Going On?", "When I Fall In Love", "Cheek To Cheek" and "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye".
