Eternal Cool

Last month my ten year old son developed a sudden interest in scat singing courtesy of Scatman John.  I wasn’t going to let him hold his claim that Scatman John was the greatest EVER.  I trotted out Cab Calloway and Ella Fitzgerald. Minnie The Moocher scored well, but it was this clip of Ella in her later years that did it for me.  As I approach 50, those that know how to hold their cool get extra points.

Got to hand it to Scatman though.  He prompted a nice bit of the evening.  Scat singing didn’t enter my consciousness until college I think.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
