The classic scene from High Society . . .

And a fantastic live performance of this terrific Cole Porter number . . .

Absolutely wonderful -- Crosby on rare form; Louis, typically striking on the trumpet and singing on the second-to-last verse, and a stellar group of musicians behind them. Now that's jazz!!!!

Great stuff indeed. Crosby was one singer whose voice never seemed to fade with old age, either. The double LP of his 1976 show at the London Palladium finds him in great voice and highly entertaining (and Rosemary Clooney gives a superb rendition of Fifty Ways To Leave Your Lover in the show too!)
