Bing Crosby - Jazz Singer

I recently gave a Zoom recital to a local jazz society, entitled Bing Crosby - Jazz Singer

Anton has kindly posted the recording on Youtube for members to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4VBvmFm368

Re: Bing Crosby - Jazz Singer

This is a superb in-depth presentation looking at Bing's jazz singing. Running to nearly two hours, the jazz society members were obviously really impressed and hopefully will now appreciate Bing's jazz credentials. . Our thanks to Jason for putting this together. An awful lot of work went into it.

Incredibly, and considering it was a 2hr recital, only 2 songs were blocked by Youtube both from the BING & Satchmo album...

Re: Bing Crosby - Jazz Singer

So here is the dumb question, which of Bing's albums, if any, would you classify as "Jazz" albums? I sometimes see an album listed someplace and Jazz or Jazz Vocal is one of the tags but really haven't ever seen any of Bing's albums classified as a "Jazz" album. 

I can't  claim to know anything about Jazz! Some of the Jazz, I have listened to is a bit too deep for me, but I have developed a liking for Beegie Adair, and have a album by Graham Forbes And the Trio that I like a lot, and another by The Jimmy Rowles Sextet.
