Album I'm Shooting High. 1. I'm Shooting High Lyrics. I'm shooting high Got my eye on a star in the sky Shooting high I'll never stop till I get to the top Tell you why Shouldn't I? You know it's you I'm after You're my lucky star I'm on a rainbow rafter Climbing up to where you are I'll have a time It's a climb but I'll make it Cause I'm shooting high.

Ann Richards, only in her early twenties at the time, had already sung with Charlie Barnet and would always be closely associated with Stan Kenton (whom she married and later divorced). Her life was short, but she did record a few albums as a leader, including this one, her debut. Backed by an unidentified big band conducted by Brian Farnon and arranged by Warren Barker, Richards displays an appealing voice and a swinging style.

Ann Richards (October 1, 1935 - April 1, 1982) was an American jazz singer. She was born Margaret Ann Borden on October 1, 1935 in San Diego, California. Richards, who began taking singing lessons at ten and was self-taught on the piano, appeared on the West Coast music scene in 1954. She had a short stint with Charlie Barnet's band, and was later brought to the attention of Stan Kenton by songwriter Eddie Beal. She was paired with conductor Brian Farnon and arranger Warren Baker for her debut album, 1958's I'm Shooting High. A duet album with Kenton, Two Much, was released in 1961. Kenton and Richards had two children, Dana and Lance, but separated in 1961. Richards created scandal when she posed for the June 1961 issue of Playboy, subsequently signing a contract with the low-end label Atco Records.
