Jazz + Western + TV


Julie London released 29 studio albums between 1955-1969. Her first single, Cry Me A River would become her greatest success, reaching the top 10 in the U.S.

As a single, Cry Me A River would end up selling 3 million copies. Other notable singers that have recorded it post-Julie’s 1955 version include Barbara Streisand, Michael Buble, Rick Astley, and Elaine Paige. However, the song will always be connected with Julie’s “original” version.

Apart from Cry Me A River, Julie recorded many Jazz standards including Fly Me To The Moon, Bye Bye Blackbird, Dream A Little Dream Of Me, A Taste Of Honey, Summertime, and Why Don’t You Do Right?

She also had a reasonably successful film career, starring mainly in Westerns between 1944 and 1959.

In TV, she made many appearances, most famously in Emergency! Where she played Dixie McCall between 1972 and 1978.
