Cry Me a River, a Julie London Tribute

January 20, 2017

Julie London was an American nightclub, jazz and pop singer, film and television actress and a former pinup model, whose career spanned five decades of television. She was noted for her smoky, sensual husky voice and languid demeanor. While many know her as the character Dixie McCall, she released over 30 albums of pop and jazz standards during the 1950s and 1960s, with her signature song being the classic "Cry Me a River".  She married songwriter and jazz pianist Bobby Troup and later starred with him in the television drama Emergency!  

 

She was the subject of a 1957 Life cover article in which she was quoted as saying, "It's only a thimbleful of a voice, and I have to use it close to the microphone. But it is a kind of oversmoked voice, and it automatically sounds intimate.”  Billboard named her the most popular female vocalist for 1955, 1956, and 1957.

 

Chicago vocalist Anne Burnell salutes the singer Julie London, with music director Mark Burnell and renowned guitarist Henry Johnson.   Ms. Burnell worked with Mr. Johnson on her last recording “Summer Days & Dreamy Nights”.  The band includes Mark Sonksen, bass and seven time Grammy award winner Paul Wertico on drums.
