Burnside Album Details
Amanda Carr, Carr Toons
Recorded in 1996, Carr Toons was intended by Amanda Carr to merely test her pedigree and create a modest demo of vocal jazz standards. Formally a rock and pop singer, Amanda finally followed in the musical footnotes of her parents and entered the jazz genre. Weaving in a couple of originals, Maybe’, and composer John Kester’s string-laden “Just Another Spring’, this collection is a delightful and varied offering of a singer who’s musical growth was to be measured in future recordings. The swinging version of WWII’s anthem “Don’t Sit Under the Appletree” (Andrew Sisters) was a long-running feature in a New England regional television ad campaign which brought Amanda’s voice into thousands of homes.
