Bing Sings Whilst Bregman Swings was Bing Crosby's sixth LP and his first album for Verve, recorded and originally released in 1956.
Bing Sings Whilst Bregman Swings was a stylistic departure for Crosby, marking the first time he recorded an album with a hard-swinging orchestra along the lines of Frank Sinatra's hit album with Nelson Riddle, Songs for Swingin' Lovers!, released earlier the same year by Capitol. The songs are also among the rare few that Bing had never before recorded up to that point. Buddy Bregman contributed the orchestrations, conducted a hand-picked group of Hollywood's foremost musicians and came up with the idea of the album.
A reviewer for Variety wrote, "Altogether it is quite a musical package - muscular and tender, driving and romantic, pulsating and lyrical. For Bing Crosby, the artist, it is a somewhat different testament to add to the many already on record and, as you will hear, an ingeniously varied and durable one."
In its review Time magazine said, "After 22 years of making records for Decca — plus a few before even Decca latched onto him — Bing Crosby steps out with a handful of oldies on a new label, proves himself virtually indestructible. It is only when he tries to swing too high that he begins to sound his age (52)."
