GENRE:
Musical
Rhythm-Packed and Star-Studded! Compiled for theatrical release from made-for-television short films, this curiosity from the early days of rock 'n' roll features more jazz than you might expect, but it's still an exciting time capsule of sound! Duke Ellington, Nat "King" Cole, Dinah Washington, and "Big" Joe Turner provide knockout performances, while The Clovers practically steal the show with their version of 'Your Cash aint Nothin' But Trash'.
