Bing Crosby was as familiar and fluent with Dixieland as any other big-time vocalist of the 1940s and '50s, since he slightly predated most of his crooning brethren and sang plenty of Dixieland as a youngster -- even though his influence came more from Al Jolson than Buddy Bolden. Regardless of whose lap he was on when he learned "Swanee,"

Overview

Bing Crosby was as familiar and fluent with Dixieland as any other big-time vocalist of the 1940s and '50s, since he slightly predated most of his crooning brethren and sang plenty of Dixieland as a youngster -- even though his influence came more from Al Jolson than Buddy Bolden. Regardless of whose lap he was on when he learned "Swanee," his radio show of the mid-'50s included plenty of Dixieland, mostly recorded with a band led by Buddy Cole but sometimes a larger group led by the estimable John Scott Trotter. The Bing in Dixieland compilation focuses almost entirely on these radio-show recordings, but the material is sparkling and bright -- mostly because Crosby always prerecorded his radio shows in a studio, making them sound more polished than most. Highlights include "At the Jazz Band Ball," "Muskrat Ramble," and "That's A-Plenty," plus as bonus tracks, a pair of duets with two other all-timers: Louis Armstrong ("Now You Has Jazz") and Ella Fitzgerald ("Memphis Blues").
