Carol Sloane (born March 5, 1937) is an American jazz singer born in Providence, Rhode Island, who has been singing professionally since she was 14, although for a time in the 1970s she worked as a legal secretary in Raleigh, North Carolina. In addition, between September 1967 and May 1968, she occasionally wrote album reviews for Down Beat.[1] She currently lives in Stoneham, Massachusetts.[2]

One of her early efforts was working with Les and Larry Elgart's orchestra. Later she filled in for Annie Ross of Lambert, Hendricks & Ross. By 1961, success at the Newport Jazz Festival led to albums for Columbia Records.[3] Her career stalled for a time in the 1970s, but resumed by the 1980s. She later signed with Concord Records and had some successes touring in Japan. In 1986, she married Buck Spurr.[4]
