Jazz singer and bandleader Cab Calloway is most closely associated with The Cotton Club, a Harlem nightclub where he was a regular performer from 1930 onwards. Initially brought in as a replacement for the touring Duke Ellington & His Orchestra, Cab and his orchestra proved so popular they were quickly installed as a co-house band. Many of the records that would become major hits received their first airing at The Cotton Club, with songs such as Minnie The Moocher as indelibly linked to The Cotton Club as the performer. This collection gathers together twenty of Cab’s best known titles, including the obligatory Minnie The Moocher and Reefer Man.
