Album Info

altBought this CD and the previous one as a matched pair so decided to share them as such. Whereas the Harlequin album is a compilation, this Jazz Band release contains recordings of two complete 1940s broadcasts made by the Bob Crosby Orchestra (cigarette adds included).

In 1940 radio was the principal source of home entertainment. Famous orchestras were heard broadcasting nightly from venues around the US and several weekly network programs brought their music into the homes.

Fortunately for us, during that period before the invention of home recording equipment someone managed to preserve several half-hour segments of the radio series.

The first broadcast came from the Empire Theater in Syracuse, New York, on April 6. Guest artist on this occasion is singer Mildred Bailey who had made her name singing with Paul Whiteman's Orchestra between 1929 and 1933. Incidentally she was introduced to Whiteman by Bing Crosby, Bob's brother.

When we rejoin the band for their broadcast from the NBC Studios, San Francisco, on November 28, several changes have taken place in the band's roster. Most notable is the presence of clarinetist-arranger Matty Matlock who replaced Irving Fazola in the reed section. Cornetist Muggsy Spanier also added some punch to the brass. On both sessions, New Orleans jazz drummer, Ray Bauduc, sustains the band's solid rhythmic flow. Vocals are mainly shared between Bob himself, Bonnie King and a group called the Bob-O-Links.
