“The first time I heard Carol Robbins play the harp, I thought some record company might have lucked out and recorded an angel. I had to phone Robbins at her home in California to get a copy of her CD, since I could not locate it on the East Coast.
Although classically trained, Carol Robbins has become a very accomplished jazz artist, and her playing on Three & Four (so named because she works with trio and quartet) bears that out. Her primary companion on the disc, saxophonist Bob Sheppard, is the equal of any saxophonist these mature ears have ever heard. The pop and jazz standards could not have been handled with more understanding and tender loving care.
Get the disc and hear for yourself.”
