Carter, Deborah J.
Timeless, 2006, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Deborah breathes soul into these Beatles songs. It’s far jazzier than we imagined it could be. They add a little bossa nova to “Ticket to Ride”. Carter sings in front of a piano/bass/drums trio that has just the right touch. “Yesterday” was cool pop but “Fixing A Hole” and “Oh! Darling” took on a serious jazz bent that had us pressing rewind several times. Deborah can scat and she does very well on “Things We Said Today”, our favorite of the lot.
