When my kids were little (and I was able to hook them into jazz), we spent our mornings watching Cab Calloway videos on YouTube. Vivacious, mesmerizing, enigmatic — this cat, with his definitive style and swagger, was on fire!
Folks, here’s a story ’bout Minnie the Moocher
She was a red-hot hoochie-coocher
She was the roughest, toughest frail
But Minnie had a heart as big as a whale
Hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi (hi-dee hi-dee hi-dee hi)
