Acclaimed singer, pianist, composer, producer and engineer, Carol Duboc, celebrates the enduring power of women on her new and highly anticipated solo recording, Open The Curtains. Duboc, who has been first call for such heavyweights as Earth Wind & Fire's Maurice White, Teddy Riley and George Duke, has assembled a star-studded lineup of musicians, who not only happen to be women but who are also some of the baddest musicians to grace this planet. As the title alludes, Open The Curtains, is the unveiling of a monumental musical movement that is sure to be met with a standing ovation. Recorded over a two-month span, Carol Duboc's eighth album as a leader enlists an enviable cast of all-stars featuring percussionist Sheila E., pianist/vocalist Patrice Rushen, saxophonist Mindi Abair, guitarists Bibi McGill and Jennifer Batten, drummer Queen Cora Coleman, bassist Rhonda Smith and trombonist and singer Aubrey Logan. Collectively these women have collaborated with everyone from Stevie Wonder, Carlos Santana and Prince to Michael Jackson and Beyoncé, and beautifully carry Duboc's message of female strength, wisdom and independence forward with grace, brawn and undeniable hipness. In a cookie-cutter industry, Duboc, has dared to chart her own musical path. Firmly rooted in the jazz and R&B traditions, she calls upon her rich reservoir of influences and conjures up a regal celebration exploring issues of self-empowerment and identity, love, loss and renewal. While seven of the ten songs on Open The Curtains are originals penned by Carol, she chooses to pay tribute to a trio of women who have long inspired her - Nina Simone, Patrice Rushen and Peggy Lee. Duboc performs an unforgettable version of the Eddie Cooley/Otis Blackwell song "Fever," which was one of Peggy Lee's signature songs. •Music Video with Patrice Rushen, Sheila E and more released June 14, 2016 •A Golden ticket to the Aug. 30th release party show with Carol Duboc, Patrice Rushen, Rhonda Smith, and more is hidden in one of the first 500 Physical CDs sold!!
