Louis Prima feat. Keely Smith The Witnesses The Best- The Wildest Limited Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
Louis Prima, whose musical career spanned from the 1920s to the 1970s, was a trumpet player, a singer, a composer, a humorist, a bandleader, and - above all - an entertainer par excellence. Prima scored hits in the 1940s with ďOh MarieĒ, ďAngelinaĒ and ďRobin HoodĒ. One of his biggest hits, a duet with Keely Smith, was a remake of the Johnny Mercer classic ďThat Old Black MagicĒ. By late 1954, Louis Prima had joined forces with tenor saxophonist-bandleader Sam Butera. His music was vital, a mixture of jazz and rock Ďní roll, and the combination of Prima, Smith and Sam Butera and The Witnesses became a smash hit in America, especially in the entertainment world of Las Vegas.
