Feat. Scrappy Lambert


The Ipana Troubadours made this recording in New York City in 1928 under the direction of Sam Lanin, and featuring Scrappy Lambert vocals.

Scrappy Lambert attended Rutgers University, where he was a cheerleader and played piano for a jazz group called the "Rutgers Jazz Bandits." He and fellow student Billy Hillpot formed a musical duo, which was discovered in 1926 by Ben Bernie, who signed them to perform with his orchestra. Lambert and Hillpot appeared on many recordings with the orchestra and remained under Bernie's employ until 1928.

During the 1930s Lambert and Hillpot took their comedy routine to the National Broadcasting Company, then a fledgling radio network. MCA offered Lambert a job in 1943 managing their Beverly Hills radio department. He accepted thus bringing an end to his singing career.
