“Over many years I have heard the very best renditions of the American Songbook, and I believe that with his authenticity and sensitivity, Chris Conte belongs in the top tier of performers in this genre, not only as a vocalist but also as a bassist. It’s music you want to get into bed with!” –Tom Milton (Author, Educator, Jazz Enthusiast) Tomilton.com

For this (my debut) album as leader, 13 of the 16 tracks were recorded in a single afternoon, and many were done in only one take. I play the upright bass as I sing, and while I was urged by many to overdub them separately, I’m very pleased that I stayed with my original intent of recording live and simultaneously. My fellow musicians are featured throughout. They are all exquisite professionals at the top of their game. “Nature Boy” and “’Deed I Do” in particular are testaments to their unique voices and expressive tones. While I greatly value the improvisational aspect of jazz, I adore the lyrics and melodies of this music. I try to present them with the care that the likes of Chet Baker and Nat “King” Cole did, and I hope that comes through as you listen. Thank you. – Chris Conte

Chris records with a very special French Double Bass built in the 1880s.
