According to Ever-Reliable Wikipedia, after her death, June Christy was called “one of the finest and most neglected singers of her time.” I only stumbled across her songs this week, and I’m really surprised I hadn’t known of her before that.

To me, she is reminiscent of Rosemary Clooney, Keely Smith, and also Anita O’Day, who she replaced as singer for the Stan Kenton Orchestra. The melancholy bar song, “Something Cool” was one of her biggest hits.
