Bobby Breen (was the name borrowed from the American Child singer/actor) also sang with the John Dankworth band and had a very pronounced but endearing lisp - this gave a new slant with his enunciation and interpretation of Route 66 - as written by Bobby Troup - Jazz Pianist who was later married to Julie London and mastered her hit "Cry me a River"
