Julie London Sings Cole Porter

In celebration of what would have been Cole Porter's 100th year, EMI collected all of Julie London's studio recordings of the master's work onto one compact disc. Ten of the 17 tracks come from 1965's exceptional All Through the Night, which finds the sultry vocalist proving her cool jazz mettle once again with a quintet led by Bud Shank. The other seven songs are culled from London's sessions with Barney Kessel, Jimmy Rowles, and various studio orchestras. If anyone doubts that London was a jazz-based singer at heart (and there are many doubters out there), listen to the two versions of "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" that are included here. London sticks to the melody in each but offers completely different emotional and musical interpretations that relate to the type of backing band. This was EMI's first Julie London CD reissue and it remains one of the best out.
