DISCOGRAPHY:

The Complete Carmen McRae Discography  (http://www.wonderboymi.com/Carmen/)
is a comprehensive site, in which recordings are indexed in several ways: by sessions, (arranged by date); by format (45, 78. LP and CD), by composer, instrument, and song. You can look up a certain song, for example, and find a list of the  releases on which albums it appears.  Extremely valuable.

www.allmusicguide 
Gives details and reviews of many of Carmen's recordings.  Very valuable.

www.amazon.com  
Useful for double-checking details on recordings.  Valuable.

Private collection.

Leslie Gourse's book Miss Jazz has a selected discography and sessionography.
