EU-only two CD set containing four classic albums (plus bonus tracks) from the Jazz vocalist. Includes the LPs Lullaby Of Birdland, Chris, This Is Chris and Chris Connor plus side one of He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not. A series of firsts greet our first selection of our tribute to legendary jazz vocalist Chris Connor, Sings Lullaby of Birdland. Her first job singing with a trio, her first recording contract and her first LP record! Her second album Chris features tracks from her first date for Bethlehem which were arranged and conducted by Sy Oliver. For her third album This Is Chris her reputation was beginning to grow as can be seen in her fine company of musicians. On Chris Connor from February 1956 Chris once again shows off her ability to choose interesting and unconventional songs. Chris 'turns frankly sentimental' for He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not. Chris is here accompanied by a large orchestra made up of strings, woodwind, reeds and rhythm, conducted by Ralph Burns who also wrote the arrangements. All four albums have been digitally re-mastered.
