An album that looks at first glance like not much more than what it says – versions of Gershwin tunes by Chris Connor – but redone here with a moody, mellow, jazz-based approach – one that unlocks even more darkness in these tunes than you might expect! Instrumentation is by a number of different small groups – assemblages of players who include Joe Newman on trumpet, Sam Most on clarinet, Herb
ie Mann on flute, Milt Jackson on vibes, Al Cohn on tenor, and Ralph Sharon on piano – all working with arrangements by Sharon, Ray Ellis
, and Stan Free. Titles include "Love Walked In", "I Loves You Porgy", "Love Is Here To Stay", "A Foggy Day", and "Summertime".
(Cover has some light wear, but is nice overall.)
