Chris Connor Sings Lullabys Of Birdland

Chris Connor
Sings Lullabys Of Birdland
Bethlehem Records BCP-6004

Available from online vendors so I will not be posting a sample. Presented here to share the cover art

Check out the cover image... Connor vocal style is soft and bluesy. I'm not sure what the marketing department was thinking when they selected this image for the jacket.

Connor is backed by the talented Ellis Larkins' Trio, Vinnie Burke's Quartet with Art Mardigan on drums and Sy Oliver's Orchestra. Mixing up the support musicians helps keep the sound fresh throughout the album.
