On this forum there have been some interesting and informative discussions of the considrable talents of a group on singers such as Diana Krall, Nora Jones, and some other modern female artists with similar styles. Out of curiosity, I just finished doing a name search on several music discussion boards for Julie London--another very fine singer cut from the same mold. I was surprised and a little saddened because my search came up nearly empty. I was saddened because although Julie London is gone now, IMHO, her musical talent ranks right up there with some of the best of today's artists. I think one of the reasons her name is seldom mentioned anymore is that she is a voice from the distant past (the 1950's and early 1960's pre-rock era) and most of the folks posting on today's discussion boards are not aware of her and were not around when Julie's music was so popular. If you would like to hear a sample of her sounds, go to Amazon or the like and listen to a few bars of something like "Cry Me A River" and see if that smooth, smoky, sultry voice doesn't put you immediately into a lounge mood. Someone once said that "her music is for the night people" and I sure would agree with that! One final note, she was also very easy on the eyes. It is easy to find some great picture galleries of her on the internet and it is also easy to read about her fairly prolific movie and television careers. A couple of disclaimers: I am not a membere of any of her fan clubs (if she has any), and I have no financial links to the sale of her music. I merely would like to see her get some of the credit that I think she is due.
