This interview with Chris is an absolute gem! What a treat! Chris has always been the one for me when it comes to singers. There is so much depth and substance. With so many other singers I hear the voice, the notes, but with Chris you get an experience.

Your writing is superb as always. I loved what you wrote about Chris' voice and her singing. Man you are one lucky guy to have had the chance to speak to her about her career!

I was seaching for infomation on Chris Connor, when I found your site. I would like to thank you for all the information you provide. I grew up in the fifties listning to jazz and big bands. I found that I have a copy of Chris' first album for Bethlaham #1001 Lullabys of Birdland.
This was my first exposure to JazzWax, I greatly enjoy the interview. Thanks, Jerry


Thank you for this article. I think she is one of underrated jazz singer too.
