ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Intimate recording with Lee Musiker on piano and the Gerry Beaudion trio.

Review:

“Cry Me A River” has been a standard ever since Julie London's recording made it famous. It was written by Arthur Hamilton in 1953. “Cry Me A River” has been a standard ever since Julie London's recording made it famous. It was written by Arthur Hamilton in 1953. (Originally to be sung by Ella Fitzgerald in the movie Pete Kelly's Blues, but was dropped.)

The song, which speaks about sweet revenge, has been revived very successfully by Cynthia Basinet. While there are hints of the original Julie London version, Ms. Basinet's rendition is particularly bluesy, while being a bit more sensual. Accompanied by a sensitive rhythm section, the singer displays her beautiful voice on a version full of desire, regret, and quiet satisfaction at how the broken love affair turned out. The results are haunting and memorable." ~Scott Yanow, author of ten jazz books including The Jazz Singers, Jazz On Film and Jazz On Record 1917-76
