Weekend Extra: More Good Singing

The Frank Sinatra-Peggy Lee video generated a batch of interesting comments and a lead to a clip featuring Lee and Julius LaRosa, a singer we don’t hear much about these days…but should. Points of interest: LaRosa at ease riding on Nelson Riddle’s arrangement of a little-known song, and Lee, unaccompanied, swinging the first six notes from a dead stop as she heads into the chorus in “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore.” We don’t get to hear Nat Cole sing or play in this video, but it’s his show.
