Lyn Stanley celebrates the songs that Julie London sang / Musicalmemoirs
In this, her 6th album release, Lyn Stanley celebrates the songs that Julie London sang. Included are familiar compositions like "Goody Goody", "Bye Bye Blackbird," I've Got A Crush on You" the over-sung "Summertime" and Julie London's huge hit, "Cry Me A River." Stanley also tackles the Motown standard, "Heard It Through the Grapevine" by Norman Whitfield and my old friend, Barrett Strong. The arrangement is quite nice with shades of an Ahmad-Jamal-groove and an appealing percussive and drum addition by Aaron Serfaty. Surprisingly, the band turns an R&B hit record into a jazz ballad. It was an interesting production. The lineup includes; Lyn Stanley, vocals; John Chiodini, guitar; Mike Garson & Christian Jacob, piano; Chuck Berghofer & Michael Valerio, bass; Paul Kreibich, drums; Aaron Serfaty, drums/percussion; Luis Conte & Brad Dutz, percussion.
