Marc Cary Piano
Burniss Earl Travis II Bass
Sameer Gupta Drums
The first time I heard Marc Cary he was playing with my all time favorite singer, and one of my all time favorite musicians Betty Carter. I say "musician" because her musicianship were beyond superb, she was among the best. Marc Cary said:
Waltz Betty Waltz is dedicated to the great Betty Carter. I wrote this for Betty to somehow document my love for her patience and insistence on excellence and etiquette. She was open and had ears that could marvel anyone who listened to her. She progressed my career and ability to be me by 100% and I am ever grateful. This tribute to Bettey Features Sameer Gupta on drums, Rashaan Carter on bass and Marc Cary on Piano. I hope you enjoy this!
The performance at the link has a different bass player, obviously. Both are wonderful performances. Marc Cary is one of my favorite piano players.
