  • Calloway Boogie - Cab Calloway

    3:11

    The Snader telescription Calloway Boogie aka Cab's Club (1950) starts right off with Cab Calloway dancing up a storm. A scaled down version of his band is seated behind him: Panama Francis on drum kit, Milt Hinton on doublebase, Jonah Jones on trumpet, Dave Rivera on piano. For this number, Jonah on trumpet is mightily highlighted.

    It's a one-take live performance & Cab's not perfectly miked, but it has that no retakes realism to it that is a pleasure.

    The song however boils down to a fairly standard boogie woogie, with new words put to an old riff: Here's a little song I'd like to do for you/ Ain't nothin' to it, it's easy to do/ Called the Calloway boogie. Calloway boogie/ Keeps you groovy twenty-four hours day.

    It's really Jonah's trumpet that saves the song from being a cookie-cutter number to the standard boogie beat. This song's studio recording includes Cab's entire band, & this scaled down version is actually a very lovely alternate, thanks to Cab's major sideman Jonah Jones who just can't be praised enough.

    1:10


    Betty Boop runs away from home with her friend, Bimbo the Dog. They end up in a cave where a walrus, with Cab Calloway's voice, sings Minnie the Moocher and dances to the melancholy song. He is joined in the performance by various ghosts, goblins, skeletons and other frightening things. Betty and Bimbo are subjected to skeletons drinking at a bar; ghost prisoners sitting in electric chairs; a mother cat with skull-like eyes feeding her equally empty-eyed kittens; and worse. *******************************************************************************************************

    Cab Calloway - St. James Infirmary

    Wendell Culley's classical style and clean trills can be heard on the intro and coda of 'St. James Infirmary' . Cab's vocal defies the usually tragic feel of this classic 'moaner' I think. There are further solos by Joe Thomas and Lammar Wright. 'St. James Infirmary' served briefly as the signature tune of Cab Calloway and His Orchestra. It also registered on the best seller charts in June 1931.

    This song was a product of Cab's September the 23rd, 1931 session. 'You Rascal You' became on of the tops songs of 1931, when it saw hit versions by Cab Calloway (of course), Louis Armstrong, Red Nicholas and The Mills Brothers. Solos by Foots Thomas, Arville Harris and Reuben Reeves, and some inspired banjo picking by Morris White, add spice to this performance.

    I want to make the following statement. I welcome reactions to my videos but remove stupid posting such as the one from the Jackass who asked why I pitch shifted (odd way of describing it) this video, when actually this, and all my historic jazz videos, comes straight from the original 16 mm film copy and is exactly as played by the bands, allowing for minor pitch changes caused by a possible inaccurate projector speed. In this video of the tune Railroad Rhythm, AS INDEED IN ALL OTHER VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE OF THIS SAME FOOTAGE, the key of the tune is a solid and perfectly correct D minor, as it is also on the sheet music.
