Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Rudy Vallee-these cultural icons whose fame spanned all the important mass media, also played a vital role in the origin and development of the crooning tradition. Crooners spurred the rise of radio as home staple and the Golden Age of film musicals. When commercial television became a viable commodity, crooners anchored perhaps the first TV programming innovation, the variety show.

We pay close attention to the introduction, written by Ian Whitcomb, which explores the social, historical, and technological context that brought about the appearance of crooning and crooners. In future videos, we will discuss more in depth the lives and careers of some of the six crooners to whom chapters are devoted in this book: Gene Austin, Russ Columbo, Bing Crosby, Nick Lucas, Johnny Marvin, and Rudy Vallee.

'The Rise of the Crooners' is no less than a key sourcebook, for those interested in the brief--but ultimately, very influential--period on the American musical spectrum, known as "The Crooner Era". But this book isn't simply about "the crooners" and "crooning"--it presents both the "before," as well as the aftermath of this now largely-forgotten moment in time, when a few shockingly intimate young men snuck their way into the homes of an adoring radio public, in a way that was previously impossible. The writers clearly portray how revolutionary these singers were in their day--when radio and the amplifying mic first attained wide-popularity. Crosby, Columbo & Vallee--along with several other golden-toned vocalists--created a whole new style of intimate, "up-close" singing that caused a sensation--and the sounds of pop vocalists of the 21st century can be directly linked to this era, too. The book is extremely informative and the writing is excellent.The writers have clearly done their homework. I consider this a "go-to" source material, when I'm looking to confirm facts and dates--I trust the scholarship of it that well. Well-done! I only hope there could be a "Part II" someday!

The authors bring to light the beginning of a style of singing made possible by the introduction of radio and the electric microphone. Separate from the shouting style of singing required by the acoustic horn phonograph and theatres with no amplification, the microphone allowed a more intimate soft style of singing. The book highlights the better known performers Bing Crosby, Rudy Vallee as well as informs on the forgotten performers Art Gillham, Jack Smith, Little Jack Little and others instrumental in developing the intimate crooning style.
