Chris ConnorChris (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Bethlehem (Japan), Mid 50s. Used ... $9.99
An excellent LP that brings together a dozen tracks from some of Chris' lesser-known recordings for the Bethlehem label – originally released as eps and early 10" LPs. Backing on the set is by The Ellis Larkins Trio, The Vinnie Burke Quartet, The Ralph Sharon combo, and Sy Oliver's orchestra – and the set features tracks that include "All About Ronnie", "In Other Words", "A Good Man Is A Seldom Thing", "I Hear Music", "Out Of This World", and "Lush Life". Chris herself is singing in that moody, icy style that we love so much – sounding especially nice on the sparer tunes, which seem to wallow in lost love and distant longing. CD
(Out of print. Includes obi – and still sealed!)

Chris ConnorChris Connor Sings Lullabys Of Birdland (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Bethlehem (Japan), 1954. Used ... $9.99
A great set of tracks that represents 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". CD

Chris ConnorChris Connor Sings The George Gershwin Almanac Of Song (Japanese pressing) ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1957. Used 2 CDs ... $11.99
A real standout in Chris Connor's legendary run for Atlantic Records – and a unique double-length set that was almost her answer to some of the 2LP Verve songbook sessions from Ella Fitzgerald! Like those, this album's based upon the work of a single composer – and features key Gershwin compositions from the 20s and 30s, 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, Herbie 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. The album features a whopping 32 titles in all – with tracks that include "A Foggy Day", "Strike Up The Band", "Nice Work If You Can Get It", "Little Jazzbird", "My One & Only", "That Certain Feeling", "Fascinating Rhythm", "Our Love Is Here To Stay", "Liza", "Soon", and "I Can't Be Bothered Now". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "Strike Up The Band" and "Summertime", done in different takes. CD

Chris ConnorChris Craft ... LP
Atlantic, 1958. Very Good+ ... $24.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(Black label pressing with deep groove. Cover has a cutout hole.)

✨✧ Chris ConnorSings George Gershwin ... LP
Clarion, Late 50s. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An album that looks at first glance like not much more than what it says – versions of Gershwin tunes by Chris Connor, done in a nicely arranged style, but is actually a rather nice set. This albums is a trimmed down version of the great double LP set Connor cut for Atlantic, issued on their short lived budget subsidiary Clarion, featuring key Gershwin compositions from the 20s and 30s, 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, Herbie 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". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Chris ConnorChris Connor At The Village Gate ... CD
FM/Roulette, 1963. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

Irene KralWonderful Life ... LP
Mainstream, Mid 60s. Near Mint- ... $19.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album
(UK mono Fontana pressing, in a flip back cover, with some wrinkles on the opening.)

✨✧ Pinky WintersPinky (LP sleeve edition) ... CD
Vantage/GMP, 1954. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first album ever from Pinky Winters – a beautiful little set that already has the singer reaching some great heights in her music! 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
(Out of print – comes in a cool LP style sleeve!)
