“Did you ever meet that funny reefer man …” January 24, 2008

Posted by Jeff in 1929 through WWII, Cab Calloway, Jazz, Movies, Music, Swing.

In this clip from International House (1933), the strangest film W. C. Fields ever made (and that’s saying a lot), Cab Calloway And His Orchestra, featuring the legendary Al Morgan on bass, perform “Reefer Man” on television.

No, I’m not making that up.

And shut up with the reefer jokes.

If ever you’re interested in Cab Calloway (an Al Morgan) you can find many pictures and videos and informations (in French, sorry!) at my website dedicated to the king of Hi de Ho.
