The Music

"Carson sings classic songs like “Pennies from Heaven” and “Over the Rainbow” set to jazz arrangements. I’d be more excited if more of the songs were originals, but only three of nine were written by Carson. Still, she hits one way out of the park with a live performance of Billy Strayhorn’s “Lush Life.”
