Cool! I've not heard "Bim Bam Baby" before. This song was from Sinatra's fallow years with Mitch Miller, right? When he was trying (almost) anything?
I liked it! But I also like "My Lean Baby" too!

Yes, Sinatra was doing whatever he could at the time it seems, sometimes with better results than others. I like My Lean Baby too, but Bim Bam Baby's tempo is just more swingin' IMHO
