"In the year 1964, Connie grew into one of
the nation's most popular "live" and sought after
performers realizing the important pacing of a show. She
had a regular two-month commitment to the Sahara in Las
Vegas. Many of her swing numbers were arranged by Claus
Ogerman, Marty Paich, Don Costa, Joe Mazzu, Ralph Burns,
or Joe Mele. In 1963, she filmed an MGM vehicle "Looking
for Love" with cameo appearances by Johnny Carson and
Danny Thomas among others. Claus arranged some jazzy
numbers for this film as well as standards and would later
work on a contemporary LP "Connie Sings Bacharach/David"
with a heavy jazz theme (in 1968) which caused Burt
himself, to state that Connie had interpreted some of his
compositions in a way that no one else had.. . ."
