Top Customer Reviews
Vocalists: Frank Sinatra, Jo Stafford, Jack Leonard and the Pied Pipers. Arrangers: Sy Oliver, Paul Weston, Deane Kincaid and Axel Stordahl. On the song "Once in a While," arranger Stordahl, who later scored such early COLUMBIA Sinatra sides as "Saturday Night (Is the Loneliest Night of the Week"), sings in trio with Edythe Wright and Joe Bauer as they back Jack Leonard.
Leonard softly croons "Marie" while band members shout in chorus behind him. Bunny Berigan has one of his best-ever trumpet solos here. He also intros "Song of India" and Tommy D.'s sweet trombone follows. The "kibitzers" behind Jack Leonard on "Why?" are Peewee Erwin, Dorsey and Bud Freeman. The earliest track in this set is Tommy's theme song, "I'm Getting Sentimental Over You."
