The Misty Miss Christy is a 1956 studio album by June Christy. Christy sings several jazz standards, along with a few lesser-known tunes, all arranged by Pete Rugolo, who also conducted the orchestra, which actually consisted of different combinations of musicians assembled on different recording dates, with some overlap. The album was originally released on the Capitol Records label and reissued on Discovery Records, and later on CD by Blue Note Records.
