Ida I Do

I just recently "discovered" this recording Bing made with Joe Venuti in 1947. They had known each other during the Whiteman days, but I wish they would have recorded more together. Reportedly Bing and Joe were planning an album when Bing died in 1977. Venuti died in 1978.

Re: Ida I Do

Hi David
Thanks so much for reminding us of this lovely track... It was the first thing I heard this morning..! It’s on Vol. 46 of the “Chronological” series and there are some real gems contained within this four-week period Bing spent in the recording studio in late ‘47.
Apart from the Joe Venuti companion track - “Ain’t Doin’ Bad Doin’ Nothin’” - there are two great numbers with The Andrews Sisters from “Road To Rio”, and wonderfully full-voiced performances of “I’ll See You In My Dreams” and “Memories”.
