Carol Duboc

Since her emergence onto the adult contemporary/urban jazz scene in the early 2000s, Carol Duboc has generously shared her wisdom and insight about love and romance in song via both compelling original material and uniquely stylized covers of pop classics.

Carol co-produced Smile (and co-wrote all but one of its songs) with Grammy nominated keyboardist, recording artist, composer and producer Jeff Lorber. Lorber invited several of the studio greats who worked on his most recent Jeff Lorber Fusion recording Galaxy to add their jazzy sensibilities and soulful power to the Smile sessions – including drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, electric bassist Jimmy Haslip and guitarist Michael Thompson.
