• Jerry COLONNA - Sings and Swings the Dixieland Way

Jerry Colonna was much more than just a bug eyed comedian, he was an accomplished singer, composer and musician who worked with big names such as Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and Bunny Berigan.

From the Wailing 'Gut Bucket' trombone on 'Waterfront Blues' to 'Chicago Style' Jerry made the transition easily. He could go from a slow four to a Dixie two beat without disturbing a hair on his lip!

Also included are Jerry's vocal renditions (as only he could do them) of the classic 'Singin' In The Rain' for which you'd wish you'd worn your rubbers, and the hit song 'Ebb Tide' which should be renamed 'Murder on the high C's'.

So here it is, from the high notes and perfect timing coupled with his distinctive singing style, the accomplished and talented Jerry Colonna shows what made him the favourite of millions.
