Shirley Andress pays tribute to June Christy, one of the finest singers of the classic period who was known especially for her rich, silky smooth vocals and cool jazz bent, first in the late '40s with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, with hits like "Tampico", "Shoo Fly Pie And Apple Pan Dowdy", and "How High The Moon", and after on her own. Her first LP, 1954's Something Cool, recorded with Pete Rugulo and his orchestra, hit the Top 20 and helped launch the vocal cool movement of the '50s. "Christy's wholesome but particularly sensuous voice," write R.M. Cook and Brian Morton, "is less an improviser's vehicle than an instrument for long, controlled lines and the shading of a fine vibrato. Her greatest moments – the heartbreaking 'Something Cool', 'Midnight Sun', 'I Should Care' – are as close to creating definitive interpretations as any singer can come."
