Jerry Lewis 45s with Maynard Ferguson


JERRY LEWIS, COME RAIN OR COME SHINE / ROCK-A-BYE YOUR BABY WITH A DIXIE MELODY Decca 9-30124

On 10/8/56, Buddy Bregman entered the studio in Los Angeles to conduct a session with comedian Jerry Lewis which would produce the LP "Jerry Lewis, Just Sings." It's just what it sounds like -- Jerry Lewis, just singing with the Bregman band -- no jokes at all. Knowing that Maynard frequently played studio sessions with Bregman, one of our fellow collectors asked Maynard last year if he played on this session. Maynard said, "I sure did. Lewis was telling really profane jokes all day long, making obscene gestures, and doing his best to keep the band in stitches. It's a wonder we ever got the recording session completed." Remarkably, this LP was a big hit. And from the LP, Decca put out this great little 45. Jerry Lewis isn't the greatest singer in the world, but he's not too bad, either. (The more I listen to it, the more I like it.) The Bregman band, with our man Maynard, however, is first rate!
