Picture of TAKE FIVE / LIVE AT SUGAR HILL (BONUS TRACKS) When I Was Young - Carmen McRae Source

The live album Take Five finds Carmen McRae mostly interpreting the lyrics of Iola Brubeck; all dozen songs except Desmond's "Take Five" are Dave Brubeck originals. Her vocal versions of such songs as "In Your Own Sweet Way", "Ode to a Cowboy", "It's a Raggy Waltz", and "Travellin' Blues" are definitive. – All Music Guide
Live from Sugar Hill is an overlooked on-location session from 1963 that reveals, perhaps more than any other recording, why at the time McRae deserved to complete the dominating triumvirate of Ella Fitzgerald's and Sarah Vaughan. On this occasion McRae retains the warm and supple vocal quality of her 1950s Bethlehem and Decca recordings while realizing all of the dramatic potential that always made her second to none as an interpreter of lyrics. – All About Jazz
