May 14th – Kay Starr – I’m Still In Love Wth You

OK so you wanna talk about crossover…?  Kay Starr’s singing really is equal parts jazz, country, pop and blues. And she’s steeped in all of them.

She began recording in the late 30s and is still performing at 92. The 50s and 60s saw her produce a slew of brilliant albums for RCA and Capitol, none finer than I Cry By Night where she’s joined by a small combo featuring Ben Webster.

It’s hard to choose just one track (and you can find them all on YouTube) but the pick of the lot may just be her take on T-Bone Walker’s I’m Still In Love With You. I’m Alone Because I Love You, My Kinda Love and What Do You See In Her run it pretty damn close…
