Albert George "Al" Hibbler (August 16, 1915 – April 24, 2001) was an American baritone vocalist, who sang with Duke Ellington's orchestra before having several pop hits as a solo artist. Some of Hibbler's singing is classified as rhythm and blues, but he is best seen as a bridge between R&B and traditional pop music

Hibbler's highly developed dramatic sensibilities are especially well suited to the often caricature-like arrangements used by Pleis on the 1956 album Starring Al Hibbler. The bright brass and gutsy sax on their famous rendition of "After the Lights Go Down Low" and the Hollywood daydream quality of "Pennies from Heaven" showcase Hibbler at his very finest
The wordless vocal accompaniment behind his passionate reading of "Trees" is no problem, but the insistently repetitive background interjections on "Do Nothin' Till You Hear from Me" are somewhat intrusive. They are reminiscent of and yet not so difficult to take as the shrill voices of the Artie Malvin singers who were used on Jimmy Dorsey's final recording session in 1957.
