Biography
Barbara Carroll (born Barbara Carole Coppersmith on January 25, 1925, in Worcester, Massachusetts) is a jazz pianist. Early life and early career: Carroll began her classical training in piano at age eight, but by high school decided to become a jazz pianist. She attended the New England Conservatory of Music for a year, but left it as it conflicted with working for bands. In 1947 Leonard Feather dubbed her "the first girl ever to play bebop piano." In the following year her trio, which featured Chuck Wayne on guitar and Clyde Lombardi on bass, worked briefly with Benny Goodman.
