============================================== MATT THE CAT AND THE JUKE IN THE BACK SHOW WITH Pt. 3 OF A TRIBUTE TO CAB CALLOWAY! ON SHOW #4520
If you're "hep to the jive" and can "dig the scene," then you're in for a treat on this week's "Juke In The Back." Matt The Cat presents Cab Calloway: the "Father of R&B," the "Grandfather of Rock n' Roll" and the "Hi De Ho Man." There is no question that Cab Calloway planted the seeds that would grow into Rhythm & Blues on his 1931 Brunswick single "Minnie The Moocher." That song would go on to have a life of its own, inspiring sequels and re-recorded versions for the rest of Calloway's career. The tune would be revived yet again in 1980, when it and Cab Calloway were featured in the "Blues Brothers" film. Cab accomplished so much in his career, from breaking down the color barrier in motion pictures to introducing the world to scat singing and jive talking. He had a musical language and style all his own and we celebrate the great, influential Cab Calloway on this week's "Juke In The Back."
1. Swanee River Boogie - Albert Ammons - Mercury 1947 2. Minnie The Moocher - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Brunswick 1931 3. St. Louis Blues - Cab Calloway & The Missourians - JSP 1930 4. St. James Infirmary - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Brunswick 1931 5. Kickin' The Gong Around - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Brunswick 1931 6. Reefer Man - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Brunswick 1932 7. Chinese Rhythm - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Brunswick 1934 8. (Hep-Hep!) The Jumpin' Jive - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Vocalion 1939 9. Are You Hep To The Jive - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Okeh 1940 10. Blues In The Night - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Okeh 1942 11. The Honeydripper - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Columbia 1946 12. GREAT 78 - Are You All Reet - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Okeh 1941 13. Everybody Eats When They Come To My House - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Columbia 1947 14. The Calloway Boogie - Cab Calloway & His Orch - Columbia 1948 15. Minnie The Moocher - Cab Calloway & His Orch - RCA 1978 16. After Hours - Erskine Hawkins - Bluebird 1946
Another commendable tribute to another R&B great Matt and there will be more to come I am sure! If you have any requests or comments or would just like to send a hello to Matt the Cat. You can reach him at: firstname.lastname@example.org

============================================ Rock-it Radio Program Webpage Reminder
Remember, if the show
that you want to hear is getting close to the bottom of the list of
radio shows, you should tune in as soon as you can. These shows to have a
high audio quality require a lot of internet bandwidth and memory. And
currently we can only afford the 25 latest shows online here at Rock-it
Radio. So, when a new show is put online it knocks the oldest one off
the Rock-it Radio archives page. Usually a show will at least last 16
to 20 days, once it is placed in the archives.
============================================ Come Join the Rock-it Listener's Club
