BING CROSBY Sings The Great American Songbook (2CD SET)

Format: 2CD
Bar-code: 5060143497407
Cat No: NOT2CD740


Without question, Bing Crosby is among the greatest interpreters of the popular song but he also pioneered the form, as he was the first singer to grasp how intimately you could sing into a microphone. This collection which includes many of his successes is a masterclass in how to perform the fantastic lyrics and melodies in the Great American Songbook. Today they are called standards but they were once brand new, and how they sparkled and delighted the first listeners.
