The singer and actress Eartha Kitt (1927-2008) was the ultimate femme fatale, “the most exciting woman in the world" according to film director Orson Welles. Purr-Fect: The Eartha Kitt Collection is an enjoyable if flawed greatest hits collection. In Person at the Plaza a representative and recommended live recording.

Eartha Kitt: Live from the Cafe Carlyle

Read "Eartha Kitt: Live from the Cafe Carlyle" reviewed by Monroe James Lawrence Yohey

Eartha Kitt Live from the Cafe Carlyle DRG Records 2006

Everything about the Café Carlyle speaks class and sophistication. The Café Carlyle opened in 1955, and has featured legends such as cabaret entertainer, Bobby Short. The venue has an intimate and romantic quality that can easily overflow into sensual and sizzle that make this location the ideal place for a live performance recording by the ever vigorous and forever young Eartha Kitt.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
