Swinging with the Starr
Kay Starr became one of the top vocalists of all time.
She did that through two requisites: tremendous talent and a great deal of experience. The talent was something she was born with, the experience was something that took time and hard work to achieve. Kay got her first taste of show business performing on Dallas radio. Her first dance band job was with Bob Crosby's Bobcats. She then worked with Joe Venuti's orchestra and then on to Glenn Miller. Jazz was always the name of the game for Kay and the greatest jazz musicians would always flock to her to play along side her. Practically all her great work was done for Capitol Records and aside from the tremendous success with "Wheel of Fortune" she also made great inroads with Liberty Records, a late Capitol acquisition. DRG is fortunate to release a rare session with many greats with Kay including Willie Smith, Joe Venuti, Calvin Jackson, Red Collender, Vic Dickenson, Ray Linn, Allan Reuss and Zutty Singleton. In addition to the rare, never before released on CD Swingin' with the Starr Liberty Records album, we are fortunate to include rare singles with some unreleased tracks.
