Movie Reviews

Hi De Hi De Hi De Ho
Steven Hellerstedt | 01/30/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"About an hour's worth of musical numbers featuring Cab Calloway and orchestra. Although the numbers are presented in music video format (song title, star, etc.) the source is not given. Most appear to come from MANHATTAN MERRY-GO-ROUND (1937) and HI-DE-HO (1947). Acceptable but varying video and audio quality. Annoying, sporadic appearances of company watermark throughout.

Calloway was a world class entertainer, and watching him perform his standards is infectious fun. In fact, I think I'd probably avoid an audio only cd because I'd much rather watch than listen to him. Modern audiences probably remember him best for his performance of "Minnie the Moocher" in THE BLUES BROTHERS. At its best, a fun peek back at one hep jive cat.

Track list -
1- Mama, I Wanna Make Rhythm
2- Blues in the Night
3- Minnie the Moocher
4- Virginia, Georgia and Caroline
5- The Skunk Song (featuring the Cabliers)
6- Hi De Ho
7- St. James Infirmary
8- Dawntime
9- Righteous Riff
10- Hey Now
11- Caravan - (instrumental)
12- Little Old Lady from Baltimore (Peters Sisters)
13- Nettie
14- Blow Top Blues
15- I Can't Give You Anything But Love (featuring Jonah Jones)
