A Jazz Date with Chris Connor/Chris Craft. The laid-back yet coolly emotional jazz singer is heard backed by top-notch rhythm sections (with either Ralph Sharon or Stan Free being the pianist/arranger) and occasional horns (trumpeter Joe Wilder, flutist Sam Most, tenors Al Cohn and Lucky Thompson, flutist Bobby Jaspar and Al Epstein on English horn and bass clarinet) adding some short solos.
Helping Chris are Ralph Sharon (Tony Bennett's long-time musical director) on piano and arranging "A Jazz Date" and Mundell Lowe on guitar during the "Chris Craft" dates. A combined 16 other fine studio players appear on various tunes. 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.
