June Christy- Lucky In Love

Luck's run out.

I began rifling through my West Coast jazz collection after hearing that Jimmy Giuffre passed away Thursday. He didn't turn up on any of my Chet Baker, Jack Sheldon or Zoot Sims discs. Knowing that he played on a few June Christy sessions, I checked this set of radio shots. Giuffre's not here either. But boy, was Christy ever delightful! Her warm, inviting voice never fails to charm. In lieu of an official recording, my friend BGO recommends this Giuffre performance video.

Tech N9ne just keeps getting better. My review of his homecoming show Friday is here.

I tossed together a Muxtape of Kansas City jazz artists' free downloads.

Kanas City Click: I'll join Heet Mob at Mic Check Monday at the Embassy if J Lee lets me pretend I'm a member of La Coka Nostra.

I have a copy of Christy's 'Something Cool' that I really enjoy. Very classy music and she has a great voice.
