Hearing Chris Connor for the first time on an Avid four album set was a revelation. This double album is a song book to rank alongside those by Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan and jazzier than both of them. She chooses seven different instrumental groups to accompany her which makes the selection seem less organised than Ella's or Sarah's but the quality of the music making and the contributions by jazz soloists such as Al Cohn, Joe Newman, Ralph Sharon and Milt Jackson among others make the collection a memorable experience. My favourite tracks are the little heard "Bla Bla Bla" which is so beautifully performed that you forget that it is a tiny satirical piece which cannot be compared to say "Summertime" which appears twice, once in a small group version and as a rousing finale nicked from a later album with Maynard Ferguson doing the honours in a typically extrovert performance that leaves you gasping and, as Atlantic Records probably planned, looking for "Double Exposure" the album that it came from.. It's a shame that Chris was never lucky enough to have a Norman Granz to promote her when she was recording so her work was, and still is, not well known outside the USA but it jolly well ought to be.
