Chapter 33: The Breeze

Vocal pop & crooners

This cool collection of crooners keeps it breezy as all get out. Bing Crosby and Nat Cole never needed to raise their voice above a pleasant conversational volume to captivate; they lean out so you’ll lean in. But even the shoutier singers here like Frankie Laine and Vaughn Monroe keep the mood sly and relaxed. They care that you’re having a good time, so refill your martini, kick your feet up, and soon you’ll be eating out of the palms of their hands.
