The Best of June Christy: The Jazz Sessions

By June Christy

Very Good Condition

Along with "Something Cool," Christy's biggest hit, this collection of her Capitol work from the 1950s includes "Baby All the Time," her duet with bandleader Stan Kenton, as well as "How High the Moon," a reunion date with the Kenton Orchestra.

A Review:

June Christy remains one of my all time favorite singers from the 50's and 60's. Her phrasing and tonality are just perfect for her songs and her voice. I have never heard a Christy rendition of a song that I disliked. Some more than others of course ("something cool" is brilliant!), but all of them gorgeous and so musical (I don't consider all singers musical just because they have nice voices...musical to me is like having a perfectly pitched tone like an true instrument of music...that's the best I can do for description of what I mean, even though I know what I mean...). I own so many of her records and am so glad for all the releases of her albums in cd's.
