Bob Crosby (1913-1993), the younger brother of Bing, was unusual in that he could not read music or play an instrument but nevertheless enjoyed a long and successful career in music. His orchestra was unique for the 1930s in that it maintained its ability to play 1920s style music during the rise of swing, eventually leading a revival in New Orleans jazz.
Bob Crosby And His Orchestra: Transcription Sessions 1936 Vol.1 contains 20 dance music tunes recorded as radio transcriptions in 1936. The tunes were all popular melodies at the time, including many from film musicals, as well as Dixieland and swing favourites. This CD showcases their unique fusion of “hot” and “sweet” jazz, and is a must for any jazz enthusiast.
