Album Review

Although his career lasted into the 1950s, George Robert "Bob" Crosby enjoyed his greatest popularity and made his best recordings during the mid- to late '30s as the leader of a swinging jazz orchestra and a solid little traditional jazz group called the Bobcats. Between them, the two ensembles cooked up large quantities of Dixieland swing and big-band dance music sprinkled with jazzy pop vocals.

Further enticements exist here in the charming personae of guest vocalists Connee Boswell and Judy Garland.
