Music at Cafe, Cab Calloway

Transformed in time suddenly, sitting at a little cafe, music played and this is the song.

Fun scat singing performance by the King of Cool, not too sure if this is at the Cotton Club in Harlem (NYC)  but definitely a  super cool video with charisma, check it out.

Minnie the Moocher” is a jazz song first recorded in 1931 by Cab Calloway and His Orchestra, selling over 1 million copies.  Calloway’s band featured performers including trumpeters Dizzy Gillespie and Adolphus “Doc” Cheatham, saxophonists Ben Webster and Leon “Chu” Berry, New Orleans guitar ace Danny Barker, and bassist Milt Hinton
