Personnel: Bobby Darin (vocals).
Recording information: 1962 - 1965.
This disc captures the chameleonic Bobby Darin in his most popular phase, that of the Sinatra-fixated big-band singer. In the first half of the 1960s, during his tenure at Capitol Records, Darin (who had started out in rock & roll) trafficked in a style that had gone out of fashion, but the young man from the Bronx, NY nevertheless brought the classic swing sound to the fore once again for a brief time. Though the mercurial Darin would go on to record folk-rock, country, and more, he rarely sounded as at ease as he does on "I'm Beginning to See the Light" or "The Good Life." Even on an ostensibly melancholic tune such as "This Nearly Was Mine," Darin injects so much joie de vivre that it comes off as pure exultation. As compilations go, THE SWINGING SIDE OF BOBBY DARIN provides an excellent portrait of what made the former Walden Robert Cassotto a natural swing stylist.
Given a first-rate arranger & big band, he could swing like the best. Here are 13 remastered standards including "I Got Rhythm", "Fly Me To The Moon", "All Of You" and more.
