SWING MONKEY, SWING !
SWING MONKEY, SWING ! Columbia Pictures, Copyright 27 September 1937.
Producer Charles Mintz, story Ben Harrison, animation Manny Gould, music Joe de Nat. I have never heard of Joe de Nat but he sure had one heck of a band and I still wonder who those soloists are, especially the singer who does such an exceptional Bessie Smith emulation.
A scarce and seldom seen cartoon from 1937 with excellent hot jazz and containing caricatures of Cab Calloway, Ted Lewis and Bessie Smith.
