Ain't That Something to Shout About
Bill Robinson and Cab Calloway get this dance number from "Stormy Weather" started, but the real stars are the two dozen or more Zoot-suited guys and gals.
I go out to the Swing clubs today and see the guys with their tatoos and the girls all made up like Bette Davis, and they can dance and move and jump and twist and jump and split and what have you... But when I want to see the real deal, I go back to the source.
Do these kids nowadays realize there is more to Swing and Lindy than Hellzapoppin? The brothers didn't get all dressed up in Zoot suits just to sweat their do's out! There was such a thing as cool.
Go, man, go.
