Trombonist Jack Teagarden, violinist Joe Venuti and singers Ella Fitzgerald "Undecided" and Peggy Lee appear as strong supporting characters.

In addition to the joking around, there is plenty of fine music, most notably "Royal Garden Blues," "Blueberry Hill," "On the Sunny Side of the Street" and such collaborations by Bing and Satch as "A Kiss to Build a Dream On," "Gone Fishin'" and two versions of "Lazy Bones." Highly recommended, even though the liner notes do not say a thing about these performances.
