ìCarol Welsmanî PRODUCED by JIMMY HASLIP, is a powerful yet accessible work by a much-admired musician whose time has come. It features thoughtfully chosen material, beautifully recorded and lovingly mixed (by Joe Vannelli, who also mastered), performed by a small core group of professionals.
CAROL WELSMAN on piano and vocals, JIMMY BRANLY on drums, PIERRE COTE' on guitar and JIMMY HASLIP on el. bass. The result is an honest statement from an artist who is as strong in a live setting as she is on record. That artist - and that recording - is CAROL WELSMAN.
THIS RECORDING was a 2008 Winner at the 4th Annual
Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards !
In a Ceremony hosted at Living Arts Centre in Mississauga, Ontario . . .
Carol Welsman was a featured performer with an amazing original version of ëWhat a Fool Believes.í And shortly after was back on stage accepting her ëAlbum of the Yearí award for her self titled album.
Album of the Year - ëCarol Welsmaní
