Cab Calloway, Scatman Crothers - Kings of the Cotton Club
Kings of the Cotton Club (American Music treasures)
Cab Calloway, Scatman Crothers
This is a disappointing collection. Scatman Crothers only performs 4 songs on this whole disc, and they are recent numbers, not pieces from his Cotton Club heyday.
Likewise the Cab Calloway material. This is Cab in the 1970's, imitating Sammy Davis Jr., doing show tunes and Vegas Lounge numbers, an entirely forgettable performance. It's not terrible, but the title is terribly misleading-- neither artist ever sounded like *this* at the Cotton Club.
