Baltimore, MD, July 25, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Washington DC's popular Satin Doll Trio presents an intimate musical program focused on the early minimalist recordings of America's most beloved torch singer Ms. Julie London whose music popularized great American Standards such as "Cry Me a River," "Hey Daddy," and "I'm in the Mood for Love."
London recorded 32 albums in a career that began in 1955 with a live performance at the 881 Club in Los Angeles. Billboard named her the most popular female vocalist for 1955, 1956, and 1957. 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." The early London recordings featured legendary jazz musicians such as guitarists Barney Kessel and Howard Roberts and bassist Red Mitchel. The Satin Doll Trio has faithfully charted many of these recordings and will be performing them in their original unembellished style.
