Jumpin’ Jive 1943 – Cab Calloway & the Nicholas Brothers (just because!)

My Dad saw the Nicholas brothers live on stage in the 1950’s and they were awesome. They could still do all this!! And who doesn’t love Cab Calloway – the band-leader in this number. Pioneers all!

And just because he’s that good, here’s some more Cab Calloway! You can’t understand James Brown, Michael Jackson, Kirk Franklin or Bruno Mars…without knowing Cab Calloway. Here he is in 1950 showing how people rocked and rolled before Rock N Roll!
