Bing & Satchmo is a 1960 studio album by Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong that was arranged and conducted by Billy May. The album was recorded for Crosby's label, Project Records, and released by MGM. Crosby and Armstrong worked together many times before they recorded this album, appearing in films such as Pennies from Heaven (1936), Here Comes the Groom (1951), and High Society (1956). They made several radio broadcasts together between 1949 and 1951.

Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby Jr. (/ˈkrɒzbi/; May 3, 1903 – October 14, 1977) was an American singer and actor. 8 His early career coincided with recording innovations that allowed him to develop an intimate singing style that influenced many male singers who followed him, including Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Dick Haymes, and Dean Martin.

New Orleans jazz was not only Armstrong's spiritual home, but it was also the venue for both singers' easiest and most playful lyricizing, replete with a raft of off-the-cuff lines (or seemingly off-the-cuff lines) and the easy give-and-take that came naturally to them, nearly (but never) stepping over each other's lines

Bing’s son Gary Crosby said, Louis loved my father and Louis was always one of Bing’s favourites. The next big screen collaboration between Bing Crosby and Louis Armstrong was in 1951 with Frank Capra’s Here Comes The Groom. Highlights on the album include Armstrong jamming on Horace Silver’s composition ‘Preacher’, though there was little press fanfare for the record because, as Billboard reported in October 1960, when the album came out, Crosby was in England with his wife playing golf, and Armstrong was on a state visit to the Congo. Crosby said he had happy memories of Bing & Satchmo. As he put it: I never met anybody that didn’t love Louis that ever saw him work or ever has encountered him, had any connection or any business with him.

Louis Armstrong & Bing Crosby. 2. Sugar (That Sugar Baby O' Mine). Louis Armstrong & Bing Crosby.

Bing Crosby & Louis Armstrong. backed by Billy May's Orchestra. It seems fitting, too, that it should make its debut in 2009, the centennial of the man who hand picked the songs for this project (and contributes a cameo vocal on "Lazy River"), the great Johnny Mercer. The success of HIGH SOCIETY, and a September 1959 Crosby TV special featuring Armstrong, became the impetus for this album, recorded in late June, early July 1960 for MGM Records and Crosby's own label Project Records.
