Something Cool

Bonus comment: I don't understand the 6 people who didn't like it.

June Christy was an american jazz singer, known and admired for her clear and expressive vocal style. Hailed as ‘one of the finest and most neglected singers of her time’ after she passed away, Miss Christy gained fame with her debut album ‘Something Cool’ which, according to jazz writer John Bush, pretty much launched the whole ‘cool’ movement in jazz singing (and I am not to disagree.)

I am pleased to have found a live performance of its title track, performed here at Playboy Penthouse in 1959 (and yes, that is a young Hef.) Do yourself a favour, pour a drink, hit play and be briefly whisked away to an era gone by, enamoured by Miss Christy’s silky smooth singing.
