Crítica do álbum

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.

Like Chet Baker on the trumpet or Paul Desmond and Lee Konitz on alto sax, she used subtlety and restraint to their maximum advantage. At the University of Missouri, Connor (who had studied clarinet at an early age) sang with a Stan Kentonish big band led by trombonist Bob Brookmeyer before leaving her native...
