DIGITALLY REMASTERED
2 LPs on 1 CD
Thanks to an arrangement between their respective labels, Atlantic and Roulette, Chris Connor was reunited with Maynard Ferguson in a NYC recording studio for a series of dates with his orchestra in late 1960 and early 1961. These sessions produced two excellent albums, one for each record company: Double Exposure on Atlantic, and Two s Company on Roulette. Throughout both Miss Connor is in good voice, singing in her sig- nature almost vibratoless style, as warm on ballads as she is superbly relaxed at up tempos. The arrangements, all by Don Sebesky except for two by Willie Maiden, place the main focus on the singer, but behind her the band, driven by drummer Rufus Jones, is in fine fettle, exuberant and swinging, crisp, tight and together. Ferguson s ebullient, stratospheric playing is liberally fea- tured, along with the full low register forays that were part of his phenome- nal range, making an effective contrast to Miss Connor s understated, almost ironic approach.
