Watch: Louis Prima - Swing Cats Jamboree

Picture of Louis Prima

Louis Prima left quite a mark on the Swing Era.  When most people think of Prima, they think of his hits from the mid 1940's or the years that Keely Smith spent with his band.  Those we great years for Prima's band, but Louis had been releasing great material and putting on some great performance throughout the 1930's as well. 

This 1939 short film called "Swing Cats Jamboree" is an excellent example of that.  Louis Prima and his quintet play quite a few songs in this spirited little film.  Songs include: "Way Down Yonder in New Orleans" and "You're an Education".  The set ends with an upbeat version of "Loch Lomond".
