Bing Crosby: Bing With A Beat

Bing Crosby: Bing With A Beat
(1957 RCA LPM1473)

Liner Notes:
This is Bing Crosby at his happiest and best -Bing singing a joyful if sometimes neglected, set of evergreens with a swinging group of musicians who are all for one and one for all- Bing drilling in a forty-foot putt on the seventeenth green at Pebble Beach. This is Bob Scobey's Frisco Jazz Band at its finest and most illustrious hour -Scobey's bunch swinging in complete harmony for a singer whom they couldn't possibly admire more- Scobey and company spotlighting superb solos over a rhythm section that's as tight as Tinkers to Evers to Chance.

This is, in its own quite special way, like days off and money in the bank, one of the truly good things in life that make you very, very glad to be alive. And there's no one other than Bing Crosby who could have done it in just this wonderful way.
