album: Jimmy Durante

Jimmy Durante. Jimmy Durante. Decca DL 5116, 1949. (on vinyl, from a thrift store)

A 10-inch collection of eight songs. Durante’s jokes aren’t always funny, but he’s almost more entertaining when he’s telling bad jokes. Musically, it’s surprisingly good; he’s more a musician disguised as a comic than he is a comic doing a musical routine.

7/10 (Good).
