June's Got Rhythm (Bonus Tracks)
by June Christy
Released: Aug 2005
Label: Blue Note Records
The first Christy LP without far-out orchestrator Pete Rugolo, June's Got Rhythm lives up to its title by placing the singer in front of a relaxed West Coast jazz nonet led by hubby Bob Cooper (tenor sax). June is relaxed, with ace solos from Coop, Russ Freeman (Chet Baker's pianist) and Bud Shank (alto). The CD adds four cuts from the hip kids' LP Cool School.
