Editorial Reviews

It's 1956, the height of the retro-Dixieland Jazz craze, and Bing has teamed up with Buddy Cole and his band for 14 of the 23 songs of this CD. Crosby, who got his start at the height of the Dixieland sound when it first came on the scene, is a master interpreter of the music, adding his own crooning flair. Other featured guests include Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bing At His Best September 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD
For the past four years now, Bing Crosby Enterprises, run by Bing's widow Kathryn Crosby, has issued some pretty rare and amazing work that Bing has done. I always think I have most of the recordings by Bing, but I am amazed at this new CD issue. It is one of the best issues I have seen in a couple of years.

The album Bing In Dixieland, contains some tremendous Dixieland music that Bing did on his radio show in the 1950s. There is not a bad recording in the bunch and some of the recordings are completely new to me like Bing's renditions of "Strike Up The Band", "I'd Climb The Highest Mountains", and "The Object Of My Affection" to name a few. The standout for me is "I'd Climb The Highest Mountain", which is a favorite song of mine. I have a jazz instrumental version by Mugsy Spanier, a vocal version by Connee Boswell from the 1950s, and a swinging version by Jo Stafford in the 1960s, but Bing's recording is tops.

Bing was influenced by the Dixieland sound in the 1920s, and you can hear it in his recordings here. He never sounded more at home or happier. If you like great music or Bing Crosby or Dixieland then this is the music for you!

Here is a track listing:
1. AT THE JAZZ BAND BALL
2. SOMETIMES I'M HAPPY
3. MUSKRAT RAMBLE
4. WAY DOWN YONDER IN NEW ORLEANS
5. STRIKE UP THE BAND
6. THAT'S A PLENTY
7. MY BABY JUST CARES FOR ME
8. I'D CLIMB THE HIGHEST MOUNTAIN
9. SMILES
10. JUST AROUND THE CORNER
11. THE BANJO'S BACK IN TOWN
12. WHEN MY BABY SMILES AT ME
13. THE OBJECT OF MY AFFECTION
14. I GOT RHYTHM
15. MARGIE
16. YES SIR! THAT'S MY BABY
17. OH HOW I LAUGHED WHEN I THINK HOW I CRIED ABOUT YOU
(written by George Jessel!!!)
18. EVERYBODY LOVES MY BABY
19.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Crosby from Late 1950s January 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Bing Crosby was a great singer of American popular song. He excelled at Dixieland Jazz, as he did in so many genres. These selections from approximately 1956-57 reveal a master of the medium. A number of the tracks, other than those culled from the Mosaic release, have never appeared before. Ella Fitzgerald is on one duet, and Louis Armstromg on another featured on this CD. This is a fun-filled, toe-tapping release of some of the fine songs from the American songbook, rendered by an iconic artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bing at home. June 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have read many times that BIng was most comfortable in dixie settings. This fact is evident on this C.D. Bing is at his best accompanied by some of the best Dixie men. Matty Matlcok has provided most of the excellent arrangements. This disc is a perfect companion to the Bing with a Beat album/disc. Highly reccomended.
