As always, there is much to be enjoyed in this summer issue of BING. After writing at length about Eddie Lang not too long ago, Anton continues exploring Bing’s friendships with jazz musicians by concentrating on trailblazing trombonist Jack Teagarden this time around. And, of course, all the regular contributors are back to offer members the best reading materials on all things Crosby that can be found anywhere, and we’re very grateful to all of them for the high quality of their work. Wherever you may find yourselves this summer—beach or mountain, surf or turf, lake house or cabin on a hill—we hope you have a fun time and that you’ll take a little bit of Bing along with you.

There are some very interesting new releases from Primary Wave available for streaming and it looks like these will be continuing at monthly intervals. Further details in the magazine.

I should like to thank all the contributors and the many members who worked hard to celebrate Bing’s 120th birthday and bring it to the public’s attention.
