Bing on Blue

Bing on Blue is like the name of a great late 50's Bing Crosby jazz album. There's a real one called Bing Sings whilst Bregman Swings that is fantastic. Buddy Bregman had a real crash-boom-swingy arrangement and Bing did his thing. The best on this album ( and one of my favorite "Der Bingle" songs ever is his cover of Johnny Mercer's classic Jeepers Creepers .

Okay, a word on Bing Crosby. I love Bing...a lot. There's a scene in Road to Morocco where he's looking for Bob Hope ( who he sold for food money...), and he's singing his way through the streets of Morocco as he does it. The best part is...He's wearing a fez and...He looks really cool in it!
