Chris Connor at the Village Gate, Early Show and Late Show. Chris Connor recorded a number of non-album sides for Atlantic Records that were never released. These songs were housed in a warehouse in Long Branch, New Jersey. In February 1978, a warehouse fire destroyed many of Connor's Atlantic master tapes and alternate recordings as well as those from Atlantic's "golden age" and it is believed that most of these recordings are now lost.
Recorded live in 1963 at the Village Gate, New York City. Reissue produced by Michael Cuscuna. Originally issued as FM LP-300.
Kay was the manager of Chris Connor and Herbie Mann, among others, and erstwhile husband of Diahann Carroll. Pete Kameron was the manager of the Weavers and an advisor of sorts to the Tarriers. Kay and Kameron formed a partnership called Village Planners Inc. and from this partnership they started FM Records. Kameron and Kay ended up being listed as producers on many of the FM albums, along with Alan Douglas (who also was responsible for the op-art record jackets). The output of FM was a mixture of jazz and folk releases.

Before Connor appears on stage, her trio of pianist Bob Kaye, bassist Bill Douglass, and drummer Eddie Marshall, opens the concert with a swinging rendition of the jazz staple "Stella by Starlight" that has Kaye stretching considerably. Connor makes her entrance with "I Hear That Music Now," a tune associated with her '50s colleague Peggy Lee. And while her voice is markedly lower than in the earlier part of her career, her phrasing is still silky smooth and swinging. I'm All Smiles" is a decidedly darker, dissonant take on the bubbly waltz-time number. After leaving Atlantic, she recorded the live Chris Connor at the Village Gate for the small FM label. She followed up with 1964's A Weekend in Paris before the label declared bankruptcy.
Practitioner of the Anita O'Day-influenced cool school, Connor emerged as one of most popular of jazz singers in the late '50s. Chris Connor at the Village Gate.
