jive bop and scoogalli op op. - words first
some sense later
jive bop and scoogalli op op.
Did some house cleaning today. Watched a VHS that was unburied of Cab Calloway. "Hi De Ho!" A little plot wrapped around a bunch of songs. Movie released in 1947 I think. I was lucky enough to meet and hang out a bit with a gentleman from New Orleans who played in that band. I am still trying to understand and apply the lessons I learnt from Mr. Danny Barker.

Current Mood: touched wistful
Current Music: memories

Some of the actors are a bit stiff but Mr. Calloway is great. There are some other not well known singers and dancers featured as well.
