BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY

HOW BIG CAN YOU GET ?

2009-05-26

BIG BAD VOODOO DADDY HOW BIG CAN YOU GET? This CD is tribute release to the late great Cab Calloway. The songs on this disc jump alive and bring back the charisma from one of the finest band leaders ever in the Jump Jazz genre. Cab passed away in 1994, but he passed his torch on and his music will live for generations to come. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy Would make Cab proud on this release with their signature high energy sound including a larger horn section then was found on the original tracks. Scotty Morris can not duplicate the authentic vocal sound that made Cab Calloway a legend but he can certainly bring his listeners back to a simpler time when Jazz was the music of the day.
