Bethlehem's Girlfriends - Chris Connor, Julie London, Carmen McRae

It's All Right With Me - Chris Connor
Bethlehem's Girl Friends
Julie London, Carmen McRae, Chris Connor
Bethlehem Records BCP-6006

From the back cover: Luckily for Bethlehem, its catalogue is rich enough to produce material by these three artists to make-up this wonderful sampling of their varied styles.

And lucky for us as this is one excellent compilation album. The track selection by Bethlehem is perfect. The featured tunes are hand-picked for their quiet, jazzy subtle and emotional depth. They play off one another extremely well. I don't normally collect popular pop compilations but if you enjoy anyone of these ladies, this collection will likely strike you as amazing.
