The album was recorded in stereo, but the original release was mono only  Two years later, the stereo issue was released. John Lewis and Connie Kay of the Modern Jazz Quartet provided piano and drums, respectively. gave Chris Connor a 4 1/2 star review:

The first jazz vocal LP ever released on Atlantic Records, Chris Connor’s self-titled album is one of her best (among considerable competition). Connor’s coarse, throaty tone, sweet phrasing, and unerring rhythm were peaking during the late ’50s, and the results are delightful tweaks of the standards “Anything Goes” and “Almost Like Being in Love.”
