Forever great
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Chris Connor must have found the fountain of youth. As the years pass she only broadens and deepens as an artist yet somehow she always sounds fresh and surprising. This splendid album of great songs is a great example. As ever, Chris selects a mixture of well-known songs and not-so-well-known and gives every selection the full dramatic and sonic treatment. Has any singer ever more tenderly cared for every song she's ever recorded? Chris' powers of interpretation are fueled by her keen intellect but she also has few equals in bringing her songs to life with deepfelt emotion. Whether she's having fun with a song or down in the emotional depths, every song is treated with the utmost respect. This is a terrific album beautifully recorded and indeed it is a classic."

"This is the first (and better) of two albums Chris Connor recorded for the Contemporary label in 1986. Keyboardists Miichael Abene and Richard Rodney Bennett, saxophonist Paquito D'Rivera, trumpeter Claudio Roditi, bassist Rufus Reid and drummer Akira Tana -- all better known now than in 1986 -- combine with the former Kenton vocalist on great songs like "Laura," "You Don't Know What Love Is," "Ten Cents a Dance," "Brazil," "We'll Be Tgether Again" and "Blame It on My Youth." It's Chris at her best!"
A fine Chris Connor session...

"Chris connor sounds as wondeful as ever today, she still has that misty sound in her voice, she has one of the most hauntingly cool and mystifying voices I've ever heard. On this set of standards recorded for the contemporary label, Miss Connor swings lightly with a youthful and gorgeous voice, one of the all time great jazz singers. She's still going strong. This Cd is essential for jazz lovers."
