Chris Connor
I Walk With Music

More than perhaps any other jazz vocalist the name 'Chris Connor' is mentioned with an almost mystical reverence. In Japan she is afforded something approaching cult-like status. And certainly, you don't stay in the public's hearts and minds for as long as Chris Connor has if you have nothing to say. Far from having nothing to say, Chris Connor seems to be able to say it in the space of a three-minute track. From her stints with Claude Thornhill and Stan Kenton, through her illustrious solo career, to her most recent appearances and recordings on HighNote, Chris brings a lifetime of experience to every song she sings, making it not just a track on a record, but a commentary on life itself.

W/ Mike Abene- piano, Bill Easley- reeds, Jack Wilkins- guitar, Chip Jackson- bass, Dennis Mackrel- drums & Memo Acevedo- percussion.

Tracks: Route 66; Where Can I Go Without You; Quiet Nights; That Old Black Magic; How High the Moon; I Walk With Music; Serenade in Blue; Shall We Dance; This Heart of Mine; On the Road Again
