The 21 songs on this compilation were recorded in 1954 and 1955 and originally released as Chris Connor's first three solo 12" albums. Technically speaking, they're not her first solo recordings, as she'd previously done some 10" albums for the Bethlehem label. But certainly they rate among the cream of her early solo work, concentrating on material by the likes of Richard Rodgers-Lorenz Hart, Cole Porter, George Gershwin-Ira Gershwin, Gordon Jenkins, George Shearing, and Charles DeForest. On the 1955 sessions in particular (from which the final eight songs are drawn), she's backed by some top players, including Herbie Mann, Milt Hinton, J.J. Johnson, and Kai Winding.

Like Chet Baker on the trumpet or Paul Desmond and Lee Konitz on alto sax, she used subtlety and restraint to their maximum advantage.
