Julie London - the coin a phrase from Variety; a celebrated Thrush.

In case your New Years is heading in a mellow direction, or if you're waking up/coming to and can't handle anything louder than a whisper, here is Bobby "Route 66" Troup with his trio featuring then-up-and-comer Julie London on vocals. All from the celebrated Cameo Room on New York's Eastside.

Recorded for NBC Radio in 1956, the set features Troup's immortal Route 66 and London's famous "Cry Me A River". A pretty good show and a nice sendoff to the new year.

Get comfortable.
