Lavern Baker/Chris Connor/Herbie Mann/Bobby ShortNo Strings – An After Theater Version ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1962. Used ... $7.99
An "after theater" version of the Richard Rogers musical No Strings – done in a cool way that really changes the feel of the music! The "cast" for the set is an assortment of Atlantic Records artists from the early 60s – Herbie Mann, Chris Connor, Lavern Baker, and Bobby Short – all brought together to perform the tunes, which are recast nicely in arrangements by Mann, Al Cohn, and Bobby Scott. Chris Connor sings "The Sweetest Sounds", "No Strings", "Look No Further", and "Nobody Told Me"; Bobby Short sings "Be My Host", "An Orthodox Fool", and "The Man Who Has Everything"; Lavern Baker sings "Eager Beaver" and "Loads Of Love"; and Herbie Mann plays a cool Latinized version of "La La La".

Conte Candoli & Lou Levy/Chris ConnorWest Coast Wailers/Sings Ballads Of The Sad Cafe ... CD
Atlantic/Collectables, 1957/1959. Used ... $9.99
2 icy-cool jazz classics on one CD! The Candoli/Levy session is one of Conte's best-ever records, and it features a tight west coast jazz group playing great hard little numbers like "Pete's Alibi", "Jordu", "Cheremoya", and "Comes Love". Bill Holman's on tenor, and the rhythm section features Leroy Vinnegar and Lawrence Marable – and the whole thing's one of the best (and most overlooked) west coast sessions of the late 50s! Ballads of The Sad Cafe is one of the most heartbreaking albums ever cut by Chris Connor – and it features the lovely vocalist working her way through a great set of moody tracks, with stunning arrangements by Ralph Sharon. Titles include "Glad To Be Unhappy", "Bargain Day", "Something I Dreamed Last Night", "Ballad Of The Sad Cafe", and "The End Of A Love Affair". The backing is great, too, and it features many strong players! CD

✨✧ Chris ConnorChris Connor ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good ... $6.99
The first album in a legendary run of vocal jazz classics on Atlantic Records – and a set that really helped Chris Connor move to a new level of expression in her music! The sound here is much richer than Connor's previous recordings for Bethlehem – and the small combo jazz backings have been replaced by fuller orchestrations by Ralph Burns – done in a cool, edgey sort of way that really pushes Chris into newly sophisticated territory! The sound's on a par with the best June Christy/Pete Rugolo collaborations on Capitol – and the group's filled with some great jazz players, including Zoot Sims, John Lewis, Milt Hinton, and Oscar Pettiford. Titles include "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "My April Heart", "He Was Good to Me", "Where Are You", and "Get Out Of Town". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris ConnorChris Connor At The Village Gate (Japanese pressing) ... CD
FM/EMI (Japan), 1963. Used ... $9.99
One of Chris Connor's most obscure albums from the 60s – and one of her nicest too! The record's got a less polished feel than some of Connor's work for Atlantic or ABC – recorded live at the Village Gate, and divided up into "late" and "early" shows that both have a slightly different spirit. Backing is by a small group that includes Mundell Lowe on guitar, Ronnie Ball on piano, Richard Davis on bass, and Ed Shaunessy on drums – and the liveness of the recording really comes through, in a way that gets more at the boozy Chris of late nite clubs than you'd hear on most of her studio albums. Titles include "All Or Nothing At All", "Old Devil Moon", "Goodbye", "Only The Lonely", "Black Coffee", "Ten Cents A Dance", and "Only The Lonely". CD

Chris ConnorChris Connor Sings Gentle Bossa Nova ... CD
ABC/Just A Memory (Canada), 1965. Used ... $7.99
A really great album from Chris Connor – and very different than most of her other work of the 60s! The album's got a light bossa feel, as you'd guess from the title – an approach that works wonderfully with Connor's vocals, and helps push her into territory that's plenty fresh, and pretty darn groovy too! The great Pat Williams handled the arrangements – in that lightly dancing mode that he used for his work on Verve, and select soundtracks too – a blend of jazz and larger orchestrations that's mighty nice, and every bit as captivating as the vocals from Chris. Titles include the great Steve & Eydie cut "Can't Get Over the Bossa Nova" – plus "A Quiet Thing", "Taste Of Honey", "Feeling Good", "Baby The Rain Must Fall", and "Stranger On The Shore". Great cover, too – with Chris looking all boozy! CD

Chris ConnorChris Connor Sings Lullabys For Lovers (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Bethlehem (Japan), 1954. Used ... $28.99
One of the most compelling early albums recorded by Chris Connor for Bethlehem – a sweet little 10" session that was part of her initial "lullabies" series! The backings on the set are extremely haunting – played by the Vinnie Burke Quartet, with a lineup that includes accordion, guitar, bass, and drums – all of which makes for a more unusual sound than the usual piano trio backings that might accompany a singer like Chris! Titles include "Lush Life", "Out Of This World", "Cottage For Sale", "How Long", and "Stella By Starlight". CD

Chris ConnorChris Connor Sings Lullabys For Lovers (remastered edition) ... CD
Bethlehem, 1954. Used ... $6.99
Not the sleepy tunes you might guess from the "lullaby" in the title – but a wonderful collection of early small group material from vocalist Chris Connor! The set's got a very unusual format – in that the group's instrumentation is really different than the regular piano trio accompaniment – at a level that definitely unlocks the most modern tones in Connor's vocals! Vinnie Burke heads up the group on bass – and players include Joe Cinderalla on guitar, Don Burns on accordion, Ronny Odrich on clarinet and flute, and Art Madigan on drums – all laying out some great dark tones with lots of moody shadows for Chris to work with. Titles include "Lush Life", "Out Of This World", "Cottage For Sale", "How Long", and "Stella By Starlight". CD

Chris ConnorChris Connor/He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not ... CD
Collectables, 1956. Used ... $2.99
Although most of Chris Connor's best recordings for Atlantic have always been darn tough to find, and rarely reissued, this excellent 2-fer makes these classic albums of icy vocals available once again! Chris sings in her best cool voice, with backing by a number of different groups made up of jazz players like Zoot Sims, John Lewis, Milt Hinton, and Oscar Pettiford – plus some larger orchestral arrangements by Ralph Burns. Cuts include "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "My April Heart", "Circus", "Something To Live For", "High On A Windy Hill", "Thursday's Child", "About The Blues", and "Round About". We should also let you know that two tracks have been switched from the Chris Connor album for some reason – possibly because of trouble with the original masters. CD

Chris ConnorHe Loves Me, He Loves Me Not ... LP
Atlantic, 1956. Very Good- ... $6.99
A fantastic cover, and some great music to match – a key early classic in Chris Connor's late 50s run for Atlantic Records! As on her debut for the label, Ralph Burns handles the arrangements here – in a mode that's somewhat modern, but never too academically so – with just the right pitch to create an additional sense of edge next to Connor's vocals, but never overwhelm them too much. There's a new sense of expression going on here – one that perfectly illustrates why Chris' approach was so different than some of the more emotive singers from years before. Tracks include "Why Can't I", "About The Blues", "Thursday's Child", "High On A Windy Hill", and "Round About". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris ConnorJazz Date With Chris Connor (Japanese pressing – with bonus tracks) ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1956. Used ... $6.99
They got the "jazz date" right in the title on this one – as Chris Connor works here with some exceptional small combo backing – all in a mode that almost takes her back to the earliest sound of her first few records on Bethlehem! Ralph Sharon's the maestro here – handling all the arrangements for a few small combos with players who include Oscar Pettiford on bass, Sam Most on flute, Eddie Costa on vibes, Joe Puma on guitar, and Lucky Thompson and Al Cohn on tenor – all modern-minded players who turn out to be a really great fit for Connor on the date. A few numbers even feature added Latin percussion from Mongo Santamaria – and titles include "All I Need Is You", "Driftwood", "Fancy Free", "It Only Happens When I Dance With You", and "Lonely Town". CD features 2 bonus tracks – "Misty" and "Senor Blues". CD

Chris ConnorMisty ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), Late 50s. New Copy ... $14.99
An unusual set from the legendary vocalist Chris Connor – a record that's graced with a boozy later image of Chris on the front, but which features a host of rare gems from her late 50s years at Atlantic Records! There's some really wonderful work on the record that easily matches, if not beats Chris Connor gems on some of her bigger albums of the time – especially since some of the cuts show Connor trying out some new modes, and new ideas – elements that go past her usual vocal jazz styles, with some cool inflections that really open things up. Highlights include great versions of "Senor Blues", "Moon Ride", "I Sold My Heart To The Junkman", and "Invitation" – plus "Long Hot Summer", "Fortune Cookies", "Circus", and "Flying Home". CD

Chris ConnorThis Is Chris ... CD
Bethlehem/Avenue, 1955. Used ... $6.99
Beautifully icy vocals from the amazing Chris Connor – the kind of record that set a new standard for vocal jazz back in the 50s! The session's a small group one – with Chris singing intimately alongside backing from Herbie Mann on flute and tenor, Kai Winding and JJ Johnson on trombones, Joe Puma on guitar, and Ralph Sharon on piano – all lightly arranged to allow Connor's vocals prime placement in the record, while shading in the spaces with some nicely modern colors. Titles are mostly familiar, but wonderfully transformed into Connor's own personal statements – and tracks include "Ridin High", "It's All Right With Me", "Someone To Watch Over Me", "All Dressed Up With A Broken Heart", "All This & Heaven Too", "Trouble Is a Man", "Blame It On My Youth", and "The Thrill Is Gone".

Despite any prejudice you might have against Maynard Ferguson, he actually does a damn good job backing up Chris Connor's lovely voice on this record – probably because his band is super-hip, and includes players like Jaki Byard, Joe Farrell, and Rufus Jones. Connor is in fine icy form, as usual – and it's nice to hear her get a bit more jazzy backing than some of the more somber arrangements you'll hear on her Atlantic sessions. Titles include "The Wind", "Send For Me", "Where Do You Go?", and "Deep Song". CD

Bethlehem, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great set of tracks that represent some of Chris Connor's first recordings as a solo act – a classic album originally issued as a 10" LP by the Bethlehem label! Backing is by the trio of Ellis Larkins – a great pianist with a really moody style that perfectly fits Connor's vocals – and Chris is in fine fine form, singing with that icy tone we love so much – a bit sad, and a bit mellow, but always heartfelt, without the forced emotion of other singers of her generation. Titles include "I Hear Music", "What Is There To Say", "Why Shouldn't I", "All About Ronnie", and "Spring Is Here". LP, Vinyl record album

Chris' Craft is a great one here – beautifully simple and straightforward jazz vocals, served up at a level that few other singers can match! The album's one of our favorites from Connor's classic years with Atlantic – as it's got a mellow, moody approach that's filled with the darker tones that first caught our ears on Chris' earliest recordings for Bethlehem. Instrumentation here is mostly small combo – arranged by Stan Free, and featuring Free on piano, Bobby Jaspar on flute, Mundell Lowe on guitar, George Duvivier on bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums. Titles include "Be A Clown", "Be My All", "Good For Nothin", "Moonlight In Vermont", "The Night We Called It A Day", "Lover Man", and "On The First Warm Day". CD

Beverly KellyBeverly Kelly Sings ... LP
Audio Fidelity, 1957. Very Good ... $28.99
An early date from vocalist Bev Kelly – working here with a backing from a piano trio led by Pat Moran, with support on bass by a young Scott LaFaro! Kelly's vocals are intimate and warm – with qualities that remind us a bit of Chris Connor on Bethlehem, but without as much of a sense of darkness – beautifully supported by Moran's combo with a light and gentle swing! The tunes are mostly familiar ones, but they're recorded with some nice elements that keep things interesting – thanks especially to the work of Moran and LaFaro – and the album may well be the best that Kelly ever recorded. Titles include "I Get A Kick Out Of You", "The Man I Love", "I'm Glad There Is You", and "But Not For Me". LP, Vinyl record album

What a singer! Anne Phillips is someone that we know nothing about – we'll admit – but this gem of an album is one we'd gladly stack next to our favorite 50s vocal sides, including work by June Christy and Chris Connor! The arrangements are superb – a blend of jazz and lusher styles, handled by Kermit Leslie in a subtly sweet style that never gets to cloying – and Anne's vocals are moody and dusky, but never self pitying. Wonderful stuff all around – and with tracks that include "For Heaven's Sake", "Lonelyville", "I've Got To Pass Your House To Get To Mine", "When Sunny Gets Blue", and "A Stranger In Town". CD

Ruth's a great little singer with a voice we really love – kind of in the range of late 50s Chris Connor or June Christy, with a sad and boozy tone – quite different than what you'd expect from the somewhat cherry look of the cover! This album's one of the few she ever recorded – a solid and intimate jazz-based effort, with backings arranged by Lou Stein and players that include Joe Newman on trumpet and Frank Wess on tenor – both of whom give things a wonderfully soulful feel! A great one from the years when girl singers really got their due in the recording industry – and titles include "Who Am I", "Gentleman Friend", "My Shining Hour", "Calypso Blues", and "Sleighride In July".

✨✧ Jane HarveyLady Jazz (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Little Jazz Bird, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A rare UK-only date from vocalist Jane Harvey – a record only issued overseas, but caught at a time when she was really maturing as a singer – working in ways that go far beyond some of her more familiar vocal modes of the early years! The shift is a bit like that which singers like Anita O'Day or Chris Connor were going through at the time – at one level more relaxed, almost as if there was no need to reach for the limelight – and at another more pensive, almost as if the lyrics mean a lot more to Harvey than they might have a decade before. The group on most numbers features piano from John Bunch, plus guitar from Gene Bertoncini and John Pizzarrelli – on titles that include "Tis Autumn", "It All Depends On You", "When A Woman Loves A Man", "The Very Thought Of You", and "Why Can't I". CD also features some other rare bonus tracks – including a handful that feature Harvey singing with the Benny Goodman group! CD

Mainstream/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the more obscure 60s albums cut by jazz vocalist Irene Kral – and a great little record that shows her to be more of a singer than we expected! Some of the tunes on the set have the straight vocals with band feel of Irene's other albums, but a few more go for a groovier sort of 60s sound that we really love – pushing Irene almost into pop vocal territory, but with enough jazz and enough class to keep things cool. Overall, the album's sort of in the range of similar mid and late 60s work by Blossom Dearie or Chris Connor – and the set list includes a lot of hip tunes, like "Nothing Like You", "Wonderful Life", "There Is No Right Way", "Is It Over Baby?", "Goin To California", and "I've Never Been Anything".

The album's a moving set of ballads and torchy numbers, recorded in small-combo fashion, in a style that's similar to some of Chris Connor's later Bethlehem work. The combo includes Cootie Chesterfield on trumpet, Jimmy Rowles on piano, Max Wayne on bass, and Ed Shaughnessy on drums. A real treasure – with titles like "A Woman Alone With The Blues", "Love Me Or Leave Me", "Easy Living", and "Black Coffee". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Doris Day & Andre PrevinDuet ... CD
Columbia/Sony (UK), 1962. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Beautiful work from singer Doris Day – and a record that may well be her jazziest for Columbia – thanks to backing from the Andre Previn trio! The pianist is still at the height of his early jazz powers here – able to solo boldly when needed, but almost more equipped as a painter in tonal color – which he uses beautifully to emphasize all the right emotive currents in Day's vocals. The approach is great – quite sophisticated, and almost at the level of a Chris Connor record at times – and very different than the Doris you might expect from her comedic films of the time. Yet that sense of surprise is also what always made her one of the secret sexy stars of her generation – as comes through beautifully on tunes that include "Yes", "Close Your Eyes", "Remind Me", "Daydreaming", "Give Me Time", and "Nobody's Heart".

Castle's got a nicely-composed approach to singing – never too flowery or overdone, yet also never too cool, either – a perfect balance that comes through beautifully with the set's stripped-down backings – just a quartet with Ronnie Selbey on piano, and flute by Sam Most. Most's flute really shades in the tunes nicely – underscoring things with some subtle blue tones that are really great – and titles include "I'm Shooting High", "Yesterday's Gardenias", "Here I Am In Love Again", and "Lost Love".

The feel of the record is quite similar to some of the vocal sessions on Bethlehem from the mid 50s – particularly the Chris Connors albums – and Pinky sits nicely alongside some small group backing from Bud Lavin on piano, Jim Wolf on bass, and Stan Levey on drums! As with a Bethlehem date, the charm here comes not from the songs, or the arrangements – but from the personal, relaxed way that Pinky puts together her performance – free of cliche, and really crafted in that freshly intimate style of jazz singing that was just coming into play when Winters hit the west coast. Titles include "Cool Sazerac", "This Can't Be Love", "Darn That Dream", "The World Is Your Balloon", and "Little Girl Blue". CD

The record has Linda singing over some sublime west coast backings from Marty Paich – leading a group that includes Jack Sheldon on trumpet, Bud Shank on alto, Bill Perkins on tenor, Jimmy Rowles on piano, and a host of other great talents – honed to perfection with the rare mix of swing and space that you'd get in a classic album by June Christy or Chris Connors – both of whom Linda's matching on this set. Titles include "Are You With Me", "Easy To Love", "But Beautiful", "Meaning Of The Blues", and "Up Pops Love". LP, Vinyl record album
