Sit back and relax as Carol’s quartet performs beautiful excerpts from the American Song Book, jazz, R&B, love songs for the heart. She is accompanied by her music arranger, composer, educator and international pianist, Drene Ivy. Sunny Tabler, dynamic drummer and percussionist, adds foundation, rhythm and accents, and Aidan Plank, educator, bassist, adds warmth, beat and foundation to this talented quartet. Together, they keep it in the groove, and form a wonderful cocktail of swing, bebop, verve and soul!
