As a kid growing up, I found Jimmy Durante to have a style that was somewhat comic--and my reaction was exactly what he cultivated as part of his public persona. For those of us who were young during the waning years of his career, Jimmy was a clown.
Even now, no one ever could call his voice beautiful, yet I can think of no more fitting a talent to sing the songs on this CD. His raspy style perfectly fits the original moods of classics such as "As Time Goes By," "I'll Be Seeing You," and "Try A Little Tenderness." Every melody on this CD is a gem, and the way Jimmy styles them simultaneously makes the listener want to weep and to dance. Can there be a higher compliment for a crooner?

Many of you might remember Jimmy Durante as the narrator from the Frosty the Snowman holiday special from over 35 years ago and the rerun will continue into eternity. However the schnozz had quite the talent when it came to making music. As Time Goes By:The Best of Jimmy Durante certainly lives up to its name with classics such as Make Someone Happy, September Song and I'll See You in My Dreams. Worth the money to purchase this C.D. and enjoy what a talent this man gave us!
I've started an unscientific questionaire to determine a person's age. If someone has no idea who Jimmy Durante is, they are younger than 40 years old. It's a shame really. As this collection shows, you don't have to be beautiful, glitzy, or have multi-million dollar studio remixing to be a truly talented entertainer. Jimmy Durante had talent and ability in spades! I keep introducing this music to people under 40 whenever I get the chance. Every once in a while, they listen.

Someone mentioned hearing this in a little shop in Northern California.

No matter what age you are you will probably know at least some of these tracks sung in the unique style that Jimmy Durante had. Younger buyers will know the music from 'Sleepless in Seattle' and if you give this a chance you will come to love his ageless haunting style of giving us music in the 'Durante way'.

A really fantastic album. Perfect for lazy evenings. I've heard of Jimmy Durante as a comedian, and wasn't wholly smitten with his usual material. A while back I heard 'As time goes by' on the radio, fell in love with the recording and resolved to lay my hands on a copy ASAP.

This is a collection of 'pretty songs', sung in a totally unique manner by a great talent. Durante plays it straight in all of them, and breathes new life into some hoary old chestnuts with his wonderfully expressive voice. It's hardly been out of my CD player since I bought it.

It certainly is the best of Jimmy Durante, what a cracking CD every pensioner should have a copy.
I purchased the CD as used but it came as new. Great value and very fast post.
I hope this review is helpful.
