Stephen Holden on Barbara Carroll

The NYTimes on the legend at the Algonquin: “Elegant, red-haired and unfailingly gracious, Ms. Carroll is herself a finished painting: a delicate, finely boned, beautifully spoken woman who is much more resilient than she appears. It is in her ballads that she reveals herself as a dreamy musical impressionist with roots deep in Ravel and Debussy. A medley of “Autumn in New York” and “Early Autumn,” arranged as a semiclassical suite, produced arpeggios of tumbling leaves and multicolored foliage.”
