This is an intruiging pair of Connor dates from the 1950s: the CD is filled to the brim with music (over 70 minutes' worth) & that's perhaps a good thing, as there's a few duds here along with the gold. The best single track is probably the opener, "Moon Ray", which deploys the resources of the band brilliantly & features spine-tingling singing. Other highlights are "Driftwood" and "Everything I've Got". Connor's singing is beautiful and swinging, and the band is terrific--Al Cohn & Lucky Thompson on sax on one date, Mundell Lowe on guitar on the other. -- On the other hand, there is some pretty intrusive percussion on the first date, notably on a version of "Just Squeeze Me" where the bongos and whatnot simply sound ludicrous. Some of the arrangements are a bit dated or precious too, as on "Fancy Free" or "Be a Clown". And perhaps "Johnny One Note" is an acquired taste too. Anyway, newcomers to Connor should head straight to the Gershwin two-disc set; those already introduced to her will want this disc for its best performances.
