Singer Carmen McRae was born April 8, 1920 in Harlem.

She began piano studies at 8 and her Costa Rican father and Jamaican mother filled their home with the sound of jazz records.

As a teenager she met Billie Holiday, caught the ear of Teddy Wilson and found her way to the piano stool at Minton's Playhouse.

Her rich career spanned more than fifty years.
