First time on CD! Originally released on vinyl in 1965, this record has been
out of print for many years.
Chris Connor was one of the greatest jazz singers of all time, with a career
spanning seven decades.
During its peak years, her singing voice was enthusiastically praised for
what was variously described as smokiness, intimacy, and lushness.
Easily one of the most underrated jazz vocalists of the post-War years. If you
are familiar with Chris recordings and intimate vocal style, you know this
isn t an overstatement. She s that extraordinary. --JazzWax

This is an album that somehow invites repeated listening. Her version of the 60s Newley/Bricusse tune "Feeling Good" from "The Roar of the Greasepaint" is just fine and the arrangement of the Mancini tune "Dear Heart" is refreshingly different from the usual approach to the song. The arrangements are by the very talented Pat Williams, who has excellent taste and creativity. I really like his work on the Jack Jones album "L.A. Breakdown," which is not available on CD.
This is well worth owning for people who enjoy 1960s adult pop vocals.
