Double Exposure is an album by American vocalist Chris Connor and Canadian jazz trumpeter/bandleader Maynard Ferguson featuring tracks recorded in late 1960 and early 1961 which was originally released on the Atlantic label.[1][2][3]

Reception[edit]

AllMusic reviewer Scott Yanow stated "With the exception of trumpeter Ferguson, there are few significant solos, and the big band mostly acts as an ensemble. Both Connor and MF were Kenton alumni, and there are moments where the orchestra reminds one of that band, but the focus is mostly on the singer ... although one wishes there was more interplay with the orchestra".[4]
