I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles (Kenbrovin-Kellette) by Gordon Jenkins and Artie Shaw, with the Jenkins Orchestra & Chorus

With his active swing-band-leading years behind him, Artie Shaw spent some time at Decca recording a variety of things, including such supporting roles as his participation on Dick Haymes hit “Count Every Star” (also posted) and this easy-listening Gordon Jenkins update of a song dating back to the year 1919.
