Jazz with George Thomas with Betty Carter for Monday, 05/16/11

We celebrate the birthday of vocalist & bandleader Betty Carter, a
personal favorite character in the world of jazz who worked with Lionel
Hampton, Ray Charles and others, but mostly led her own groups with
younger musicians who she trained to her music. Please take a moment to
call 800-639-6391 & make a financial pledge to VPR.
