During 1953-1955, singer Chris Connor recorded regularly for Bethlehem, 'This Is Chris' has her final recordings for the label with such fine sidemen as Herbie Mann (doubling on flute and tenor), pianist Ralph Sharon, guitarist Joe Puma, bassist Milt Hinton, and drummer Osie Johnson.

The two-trombone team of J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding (which had recently become very popular) is prominent on four of the ten selections. Connor’s cool tone, subtle, emotional delivery and haunting voice were perfect for the music of the 1950s.
