The high-point of singer Jackie Paris's recording career came in 1955. Over the course of three days in November, Paris recorded Jackie Paris (or Songs by Jackie Paris) for the Wing label, a Mercury subsidiary based in Chicago that launched in May 1955 to handle the 12-inch recording spillover at the parent company.
In 1955, Paris's voice was at its romantic, club-cool peak. Equally impressive was the album's arranger—Manny Albam—who perfectly framed his voice using New York's finest jazz studio musicians at the time.
