Album Review

The core of Jimmy Durante's classic repertory of songs on one 10-inch LP — naturally it opens with "Inka Dinka Do", and "Umbriago" and "Start Off Each Day With a Song" are here. Durante is accompanied by Eddie Jackson on some of the material, and goes solo on the rest, and the Six Hits And A Miss show up for "Inka Dinka Do" — all of the back-up orchestration is by Roy Bargy. Reissued in 1986 as part of a 10-song CD.

Customer Reviews

Funny, graceful, musical, timeless

I remember watching Jimmy on TV in the 1950s, when I was very young. He still has the same effect on me. Pure joy! This collection includes 25 songs and every one is precious. Unlike later recordings that sentimentally matched The Nose with big romantic orchestration, here Jimmy sings with rocking big bands, sometimes accompanied by the likes of Cantor, Crosby, Garland. I can't think of a happier album in my collection! Durante is angelic.

If any performer can truly be said to have carved out his own comedic turf, made a huge success out of it lasting over several decades, while completely owning that piece of turf lock, stock, and barrel, then that performer would have to be Jimmy Durante. There never has been -- nor is there likely ever to be -- a stylistic school of Durante; the man and his character are of one piece and ingrained in the national consciousness to the extreme. Anyone foolish enough to start appropriating any part...
