Thelma Carpenter – The Eddie Cantor Sessions

£8.99 inc. VAT

JASMCD2786

File Under: Jazz / Easy Listening
Available: June 7th, 2024

Thelma Carpenter had an amazing career that spanned seven decades from big band singer with Count Basie, Coleman Hawkins and Teddy Wilson, to stardom on Broadway in “Hello, Dolly!” and as Miss One in the film “The Wiz.”

Here on CD for the very first time are rare air-checks from her 1945-46 appearances on the Eddie Cantor Show, replacing Dinah Shore as weekly vocalist, and include her comic banter with Cantor before each song.

Additional bonus tracks include several other live performances with Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Eddie Condon, pianist Garland Wilson, and others.

A must-have for all fans of jazz and old-time radio.
