June Christy was an American singer, known for her work in the cool jazz genre and for her silky smooth vocals. Her success as a singer began with The Stan Kenton Orchestra. This release features the well-recorded radio transcriptions (from 1946) all of singer June Christy’s regular solo recordings that she had only been with Stan Kenton’s Orchestra for about a year at the time. The identification of the backup personnel has been lost to history (despite the anonymous title of “the Kentones”), but Christy is the star of these performances anyway. June Christy had the ability to swing in any song she was given, and in this case, all of the selections were superior standards.
