Chris Connor Sings Lullabys For Lovers on 10" Vinyl

Verse Music Group and Naxos of America are happy to announce they will be joining forces to reissue the iconic 1950’s jazz catalog of Bethlehem Records. The label's lengthy discography contains over 250 albums that freshly and ambitiously captured an era of music, including West Coast Cool Jazz and East Coast Bop. Their roster of artists included Nina Simone, Carmen McRae, Chris Connor, Mel Torme, Dexter Gordon, Charles Mingus, Art Blakey, and Duke Ellington among others. 

For some of these legendary artists, the Bethlehem recordings represent their classic debuts, and still for others, their greatest recorded work to date. Each track has been restored from the original analog sound recording and was remastered to meet the highest level of clarity and quality standards. For the first time in decades, each of the titles will be available in their original configuration on vinyl LP. The label's progressive cover art truly revolutionized the jazz market and each release will also include fully restored, original artwork and liner notes.

The torchy, smoky sound of vocalist Chris Connor widened the range for jazz singers and in doing so epitomized cool jazz singing in the 1950s. Her taste, style and intelligent analysis of a lyric divides 1954's Sings Lullabys For Lovers into two moods - love found and love lost - making the excellent 8-song set, with backing from Art Mardigan and the Vinnie Burke Quartet, a unique, breathy and intimate experience for listeners.
