Cotton Club Legends

Page Mr. Volstead is offering a succulent collection of music from legendary musicians who played Harlem's Cotton Club from the late 20s through the early 40s, including Jimmie Lunceford, Duke Ellington. Eubie Blake, and Cab Calloway. I'm loving Billy Banks' Scat Song, featuring some tips on writing your own Depression era wedding vows, skate 'n skeet, and hidey-hi, and scat-a-lat-a-lat indeed.

And now that you're in that era's musical groove, try the interestingly named Young Man With an Organ collection by Fats Waller courtesy of Good Old Ones.
