Carol Albert: For The Moment

May 21, 2021

The saying says  “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” and Carol Albert is taking heed.  She has found a winning formula which has made her one of Smooth Jazz's top artists. And she's a long-time friend and listener to WCLK.  She’s back with another gem from her Stronger Now CD called For The Moment featuring Paul Brown on guitar.

2020 will go down as a year to remember or one we may want to forget; one thing is for sure it had some memorable music. Several artists like Ragan Whiteside, Paul Hardcastle Phil Denny, Carol Albert and Julian Vaughn maintained their Billboard Smooth Jazz chart prowess. Some Jazz veteran acts like Spyro Grya, Kirk Whalum, Bob Baldwin and Hiroshima, showed they can still deliver despite all of the new artists emerging on the scene. As we ring in the new year Jazz 91.9 WCLK will countdown the Top 50 Smooth Jazz Songs of 2020.

Jazz Vocalist, Keyboardist and Composer Carol Albert grew up in Hiram, Georgia in nearby Paulding County. She has been making music in Atlanta, around the country and in Europe for a while. In Atlanta she has played as an accompanyist for the Atlanta Ballet, among others.

On her new release Fly Away Butterfly on the Cahara label, Albert interprets influences as diverse as Al Jarreau and Gilberto/Getz.  You can hear the title cut Fly Away Butterfly on Jazz 91.9 WCLK at various times, including during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.
