Description

After assembling albums titled 'The Ladies Sing' and 'The Groups Sing' Jasmine Records felt it was incumbent upon them to give equal attention to the male vocalists from the Big Band Era and beyond, sampling in many instances both their Big Band performances and then their later starring roles as featured solo singers.

They knew at the outset, of course, that both Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra should be given top billing and they've each been placed at the beginning of the two CDs in this collection. Nineteen other singers have been included to chronicle some key moments in musical history, both from a standpoint of popularity and contribution to the vocal art. Even a few novelty songs have been included, as an example of what was going on in many of the Big Bands at the time.
