Product Description

Cab Calloway: International Jazz Hall Of Famer; Broadway actor; Professor of Jive, whose dictionaries of African-American slang were the official reference works in the New York Library for decades; Bandleader and King Of Hi-De-Ho! Indeed His Hi-De-Highness of Ho-De-Ho, whose immense popularity allowed him to enjoy a six decade recording career, despite the fact that his biggest hits from the 1930s referenced the Harlem drug culture!

His signature song ‘Minnie The Moocher’, first topped the Pop best-seller chart at the height of the jazz age in 1931 and last climbed the R&B chart 47 years later at the height of the disco era, two years before Cab donned his tails to perform the song memorably on screen in "The Blues Brothers". Revived countless times afterwards in films on both the big screen ("The Mask") and small ("Jeeves & Wooster") and ads galore, inspiring Joe Jackson to release a whole LP as a tribute, titled "Jumpin' Jive" after Cab's massive 1939 hit song of the same name.

Cab Calloway also became a hero to millions of British kids in the mid 1980s with his Hula Hoop adverts and was introduced to a new generation of American kids with his appearance in Janet Jackson's ‘Alright’ video in 1989.

This compilation, chosen from the best of Cab's 1940s swing era output, includes the powerful 1942 recut of ‘Minnie’ along with his R&B chart hits ‘The Honeydripper’ and ‘The Calloway Boogie’ and also covers of big hits such as ‘Shot Gun Boogie’, ‘The Jungle King’ and ‘One For My Baby’. Also included is an uber-rare soundtrack recording of ‘Geechee Joe’ from the 1943 blockbuster movie "Stormy Weather".

A must-have collection of His Hi-de-Highness, Cab Calloway with sparkling new RevOla mastering for the BEST EVER sound and with beautiful artwork and notes to delight the eye!

I used to listen to this years ago on Casette.
I was thrilled to see it in CD.
Arrived very quickly in perfect condition.
It took me back years listening to this again.
Thanks also to to the lovely note popped in from the seller.
Nice touch.

I found this one quite valuable. Only complain, that there are so many numbers, that makes it too long for one session. On the other hand one gets about 2 normal cd's for the prize of one. Swing as a cultural product of the previous world economic crisis around 1930, makes a great appeal to this listener today during our own begoinning of world crisis 2.

Cool 22 Sep 2008
By Christopher M. Fulton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The first intro I had to Cab was The Blues Brothers. Granted, I saw that in high school, and 2 decades later I finally bought me some Cab. This is just cool stuff. I listen to pretty much everything and anything, and this is good stuff. If you want something "a little different", this is the album for you. Sit back, get those fingers a-snappin' and enjoy this album.
