3.0 out of 5 stars Some great stuff, some dodgy stuff--we'll call it a draw 20 Mar 2000
By N. Dorward - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album 17 May 1999
By George Fabian - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is a real bargain as it contains 2 LP's :A jazz date with Chris Connor and Chris Craft with a playing time of 78 minutes. Connor's "silky" raspiness is on display with marvelous effect and she is backed by superb jazz musicians. Her interplay with them and her sense of rhythm and timing is remarkable. This set is a real winner all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Chris 7 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"A Jazz Date" was Chris' third album for Atlantic, delayed repeatedly while her 2-LP Gershwin set was first released, then her hit-single inspired "I Miss You So" set. "Jazz Date" was followed shortly by "Chris Craft." Besides their wonderful covers, the albums are very different--"Jazz Date" more brassy and crisp, "Chris Craft" more mellow and dreamy. The song selections are impeccable and Chris' delivery intriguing, endlessly listenable and 40 years after the fact still contemporary. The best musicians back her in two topnotch albums sounding better than ever on C.D.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Chris Connor 5 May 2005
By Mr Tooty Fruity - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
From the first cut, the subtle and seductive swing era tune "Moon Ray" which Chris turns into a pure COOL JAZZ vocal classic. Poor Little Rich Girl was meant for her to sing, with loads of COOL sarcasm, and Squeeze Me never sounded more seductive. Other gems like It Only Happenes When I Dance With You and the rarely recorded Driftwood. Other gems are I'm Shooting High where we here an enthusiastic Chris and the highlight of her career My Shining Hour. This cd consists of two of Chris' finest lp's. a classic jazz vo-cool album all the way through!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb little known vocalist 18 Jun 2008
By H. E. King - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This excellent singer of both Jazz and Ballads is almost unknown today, certainly she goes unrecognized. Not unlike June Christie in style, and of the same years recorded. I Have bought all of the other offerrings from Amazon of her albums, and will use this same review for each in any requested review.
