Harlem Lullaby

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Although the Dorsey Brothers band gets first billing on this album, the studio groups which include trumpeter Bunny Berigan, trombonist Tommy Dorsey and Jimmy Dorsey on clarinet and alto are actually in a subsidiary role on these performances, accompanying singers Bing Crosby, Mildred Bailey and Ethel Waters.
