4.0 out of 5 stars arguably London's best album for the Capitol label February 22, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Around Midnight' is probably Julie London's greatest album from her days with Capitol. There's a dizzying jazz arrangement of "Lonely Night in Paris", a well-judged "Misty", and a suitably sultry "Don't Smoke in Bed" lends itself perfectly to London's style.

The biggest irony of Julie London's singing career was the fact that she never could give herself enough credit. She never felt her voice was special, and constantly downplayed her abilities. In the realm of the great jazz ladies, there was nobody who could touch her, nor will there ever be. Julie London was a complete original, and this reissue of 'Around Midnight' will be welcomed with open arms by her legion of fans.

Popular song stylist, Julie London truly got it all together to make this terrific album. 'Round Midnight is a typical example of that jazzy, bluesy, sultry sound that Ms. London was so famous for. Her voice is at it's peak with perfect phrasing.....and what a band! Her back up on all tracks shines as much as the singer! If you aren't familiar with London...this is the perfect CD to introduce her to you.....if you are and don't own this run...GET IT QUICK! You won't be sorry!

5.0 out of 5 stars London front and center August 25, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Julie London had a magnificent voice and she could lead her adoring audiences wherever she wanted them to go using the emotion in her voice. Julie London's artistry stands the test of time; decades after these recordings were made they still sell well and people love to hear her sing. What a gift she had! Moreover, weren't we lucky to receive that gift?

The track set begins with "'Round Midnight." The orchestra plays a great musical flourish at the very beginning; and when London comes in this song takes flight! Julie massages the lyrics to this forlorn jazz standard. The piano and Julie's voice make "'Round Midnight" into an unmistakable masterpiece; "'Round Midnight" provides a strong start for this album. "Lonely Night In Paris" follows; the bass at the start sounds great and Julie handles this as only a pro could! The subtle tempo changes seem so easy in Julie London's capable hands; but of course we know it really wasn't so easy. That's the PROOF we are listening to a master on this CD!

"Misty" allows London to cover this fantastic classic love ballad; Julie performs "Misty" to perfection as she pours her heart and soul into her performance. The musical arrangement makes great use of the piano and flutes, too. Sublime! "Black Coffee" sports great use of the horns to inject this number with a forlorn and romantic flavor; Julie sings "Black Coffee" without a superfluous note! Now why couldn't they all sing "Black Coffee" the way Julie did? Julie's talent sets her rendition of "Black Coffee" apart from all the others, NOBODY ever sang "Black Coffee" as well as Julie London did.

"Lush Life," a song Nat King Cole often sang, sounds new and completely fresh in Julie's care; her voice handles the notes and subtle tempo changes to make this number shine brilliantly!

5.0 out of 5 stars When I fell in love with Julie October 22, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I fell in love with Julie when I saw this album cover. It was said to be one of the first cover to feature the actual artist on the album. I still have this album and the cover locked away in my treasure chest. I had to have Julie in my iTunes and have several of her albums. Julie still keeps showing up at the top of my "most played" list...Then to top off my love affair, I walked in to a casino in Las Vegas one afternoon and there was Julie London sitting alone at a blackjack table watching the front door. After I picked my jaw up off of the floor, I introduced myself as a fan and had a wonderful, if short, conversation with her. Those were the days when actual talent was more important to being a star than how large you electric amps were. I guess they will not bring back real music in my lifetime.
