Description by OLDIES.com:

Chris Connor's "cool" jazz singing style is at it's prime on these two Atlantic albums, both now available for the first time on compact disc. One album captures a memorable Village Vanguard concert performance ("Lover Come Back To Me" and "Poor Little Rich Girl" are highlights). The other album is filled with Gershwin greats like "A Foggy Day."

Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: IN PERSON (1959)/SINGS GEORGE GERSHWIN.
Personnel includes: Chris Connor (vocals); Bill Rubenstein (piano); Kenny Burrell (guitar); Eddie De Haas (bass); Lex Humphries (drums).
IN PERSON recorded live at the Village Vanguard, New York, New York. Originally released on Atlantic (8040) and Clarion (611).
Personnel: Kenny Burrell (guitar); Bill Rubinstein (piano); Lex Humphries (drums).
Recording information: Village Vanguard, NY.
This 2001 Collectables two-fer pairs 1959's Chris in Person with 1964's Chris Connor Sings George Gershwin. The former, a live set recorded at the Village Vanguard and featuring Kenny Burrell on guitar, is one of Connor's best LPs, a bright and dynamic collection of her better-known standards. The latter is a ten-song LP released by Atlantic subsidiary Clarion seven years after the fact; though it's not the best place to look for her Gershwin songbook (check the compilation Sings the George Gershwin Almanac of Song), it's a nice summation of the session. ~ John Bush
