Growlin' Dan - Blanche Calloway. Artist: Blanche Calloway.

His parents wanted him to be a lawyer, like his father, so he enrolled at Crane College in Chicago, but he was more interested in singing and entertaining. At the Cotton Club in Harlem, New York, the band was hired in 1931 to substitute for the Duke Ellington Orchestra while it was touring. The band's popularity led to sharing the role of house band with Ellington. It performed twice on week for radio broadcasts on NBC. Calloway appeared on radio programs with Walter Winchell and Bing Crosby. In 1931 Calloway recorded his most famous song, "Minnie the Moocher".

Cab Calloway & His Orchestra. He shows what he learned from his older sister Blanche on some of the songs, but on "You Rascal You," "Aw You Dawg" and "Kickin' the Gong Around," the singer could be mistaken for no one else but himself. There is a bit of surface noise on some of the tracks (sometimes sounding like a light rain) and even a skip on "Without Rhythm" but the wonderful music far outvalues the minor technical faults.
