"Satin Doll Trio plays smooth as silk jazz" - The Washington Times
Washington, DC (PRWEB) October 23, 2014
Washington DC's popular Satin Doll Trio presents an intimate musical tribute to America's most beloved torch singer Ms. Julie London at the Jazz Corner in Hilton Head on Friday and Saturday evenings, November 14th and 15th at 8:00pm. The program is focused on the early minimalist London recordings whose music popularized great American Standards such as "Cry Me a River", "Hey Daddy", and "I'm in the Mood for Love". The program not only recreates this wonderful music, but also shares intimate stories about Julie London's life gathered over the years from Julie's friends and family members.
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."
