Description
Some of the greatest names in jazz, swing, and popular music grace this collection of showcase spots culled from TV, film, and "soundies" (produced by a 1940's video device called a Panoram). The Delta Rhythm Boys lead off with an awesome a cappella "'A' Train" and the Mills Brothers demonstrate why they were so immensely popular with a delightful "Up the Lazy River." Duke Ellington's catchy "Cottontail" features Ben Webster on saxophone and some fluid dancing from Whitey's Lindy Hoppers, and the Count Basie 7 tear up the joint with "Basie's Boogie." Cab Calloway and Fats Waller perform their signature songs "Minnie the Moocher" and "Ain't Misbehavin'" (with the requisite amount of mugging), while Billy Eckstine melts hearts with the ballad "I Want to Talk About You" and the Nat Cole Trio lays down a solid groove with "Errand Boy for Rhythm." In a nightclub setting, Billie Holiday works her mesmerizing magic with "God Bless the Child" and "Now, Baby, or Never." A very young Dizzy Gillespie leads one of the first bebop big bands in "One Bass Hit" and "He Beeped When He Should Have Bopped." Louis Jordan and Louis Armstrong both come on strong and swingin', with "Let the Good Times Roll" and "You Rascal, You."
