Composed and published, in 1953, by Arthur Hamilton, “Cry Me a River” was originally intended to be sung by Ella Fitzgerald for '20s film “Pete Kelly's Blues.” However the song was cast aside.
Twenty years after it was actually written, Julie London would make the famous with guitar virtuoso Barney Kessel accompanying her. Another 50 years later jazz vocal powerhouse Diana Krall would cover it for a 2001 album.
