Learn to croon by Frank Sinatra( Recording )

Frank Sinatra had yet to escape the artistic shadow of Bing Crosby when he sang Crosby's self-mocking "Learn to Croon" as part of a 1940 Dorsey-band broadcast medley. (As for Our Gang's Alfalfa, who also essayed the tune, he never did escape.) Learn to Croon collects more Dorsey-Sinatra performances from the trove that produced its companion volume, It's All So New! Unburdened by that CD's load of amateur-song-contest submissions, Croon focuses instead on Sinatra-Dorsey-Jo Stafford "Memory Medleys" and some hot ensemble band work. A sweet, swinging, amusing look back at the days of Sinatra's very early stardom. --Rickey Wright

The fabulous Dorseys by Alfred E Green( Visual )

61 editions published between 1943 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The rise and rise of the Fabulous Dorsey brothers is charted in this whymsical step down memory lane, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey play themselves in this vehicle for their excellent music. From being raised by their father who insists on them learning music, to the split that just saw their careers rise even further"--Internet Movie Database
It's all so new by Frank Sinatra( Recording )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the height of the big-band era, radio-network disputes with music-publishing clearing house ASCAP led to a scramble to find new sources of songs. After Tommy Dorsey's band succeeded with 'I'll Never Smile Again, ' a submission from the unknown Ruth Lowe, his program regularly featured an amateur-songwriting contest. 'It's All So New!', drawn from broadcasts made between 1940 and 1942 and previously unavailable commercially, is comprised mostly of such tunes. Boy singer Frank Sinatra, along with vocalists Connie Haines, Jo Stafford, and the Pied Pipers, gamely and winningly tackles the likes of 'I've Got a Restless Spell' and 'Sunrise Over Taxco.' The real winners here, though, are the debut performance of the semiamateur 'Oh! Look at Me Now' (later revisited on Sinatra's 1957 classic 'A Swingin' Affair!') and Irving Berlin's "Be Careful, It's My Heart." As a revealing snapshot of the pre-solo Sinatra, 'It's All So New!' is a must, as is its companion 'Learn to Croon'"--Rickey Wright, review
