Everything about the Cafe Carlyle speaks class and sophistication. The Cafe Carlyle opened in 1955, and has featured legends such as cabaret entertainer, Bobby Short. The venue has an intimate and romantic quality that can easily overflow into sensual and sizzle that make this location the ideal place for a live performance recording by the ever vigorous and forever young Eartha Kitt.

Once, Orson Welles referred to Kitt as "the most exciting woman in the world." Kitt (age 79 on performance date) meows, purrs, and growls her way through a multilingual, accented, and anecdotal performance that includes classic songs such as "C'est si bon" ("It's So Good"). As the aforementioned song states, this seventeen-song recording is so good from the first until the last track. This seductive recording was recorded live on June 30th, 2005, and was the first new release of material for Miss Kitt since Back in Business (DRG, 1994). The performance is full of sexual-innuendos that will remind jazz fans of similar banter and play by the vaunted jazz great Alberta Hunter during her performances at The Cookery in the early 1980s. Passion has obviously kept these performers young and their vocals powerful and clean throughout their storied careers.

Kitt performs in front of a quintet, led by pianist/musical director Daryl Waters, that sets many different moods, beats, and tempos, arcing this recording from the raucous, upbeat, and out-in-front fun numbers like "Sell Me" to the cool, laid-back and sensual bliss of "How Insensitive." Resident New Yorkers will have a special pathos to Kitts' rendition of "Hate/Love New York" in their duality of ecstasy and torture of living in the city. Tears may well during "September Song," and will be quickly refreshed with a surprisingly upbeat version of "It Was a Very Good Year." The entire effect of the recording is one of pure—and somewhat hedonistic—pleasure that draws the listener back again and again for more Eartha.
