CD Reviews

An album that's still swinging a half century on
Andrew Velez | New York, NY USA | 08/14/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Chris Connor comes out a fertile period in jazz for vocalists. Like those other two greats, Anita O'Day and June Christy, Connor is a Stan Kenton alumnus. And like them she has a sound of her own that is not quite like anyone else's. I've known aficianados to complain about Connor being off-key. Whatever. The albums she made for Bethlehem in the 50s and this one of the group she did for Atlantic in the 50s and 60s can legitimately be called "classics." This particular recording has her totally swinging and infectiously delightful version of "Witchcraft," which for me would alone be worth the price of admission. She's always accompanied by first-class players. (Her Gershwin collection on Atlantic is another must.) If you dig jazz singers, Connor is someone you need to have in your collection. This is not her most essential album but it's damn good."
