Julie London

Julie London

Nascida em Santa Rosa, Califórnia, Julie Peck iniciou a sua carreira artística numa orquestra de Los Angeles. Com uma beleza singular foi convidada para ser atriz em Hollywood, onde fez sucesso contracenando com Gary Cooper. Em 1955 gravou seu primeiro disco “Julie Is Her Name”, que foi seguido de muitos outros, sempre acompanhada pela nata do jazz americano. Excelente atriz e cantora, Julie foi uma das artistas mais populares de sua época, sendo considerada a melhor cantora americana durante três anos seguidos pela revista Billboard. Julie London era absolutamente diferente no meio jazzistico dos anos 50. Nunca teve a fama de uma Ella Fitzgerald ou Sarah Vaughn, mas levava vantagem, porque tambem era artista de cinema. A carreira de atriz veio antes da de cantora. Não foram grandes filmes os que ela fez, nem muito menos grandes papéis, mas contracenou com astros como Gary Cooper, Gregory Peck e Rock Hudson. Depois casou, retirou-se de cena para cuidar dos filhos e voltou como cantora. O disco de estreia foi Julie Is Her Name, onde ela encantava com o luxuoso acompanhamento de Barney Kessel na guitarra. Sua voz diferente conquistou o publico americano e sua versão de Cry Me a River vendeu 2 milhões de cópias. Ela gravou ao todo 32 discos e fez muitos shows de sucesso, inclusive no Brasil, onde veio em 62 para apresentação no Golden Room do Copacabana Palace. Morreu em 1995, aos 74 anos. A gravadora EMI lançou um CD duplo com o nome de The Very Best of Julie London, com 14 musicas em cada CD.
