Chris Connor didn’t just sing a song, she made it her own! Her easy going manner and distinctive ability to get ‘inside’ a lyric defined her performances. Although she worked with popular big bands, and even became June Christy’s replacement with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, Chris preferred to work with smaller groups and established her lasting reputation touring internationally as a solo performer leading her own trio. She was one of only a handful of white vocalists considered to be, incontestably, pure jazz singers.
Enjoy the sights and sounds of traditional jazz and the artists who create it. Here you'll find videos, interviews, photos and a variety of material that is sure to grab your attention. This site is dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of "America's Classical Music."
