Synopsis

Product Description
Louis Prima and his wife Keely Smith began an act in the Fifties that was probably one of the best in the business. A happy musical pandemonium, wherever the Prima combo played, from Hollywood's brittle Sunset Strip to the rowdy hotel halls of Las Vegas, this package was sure to knock 'em dead. The accent was on a variety of unpredictable routines bolstered by the rocking, hard-pushing alliance of horns and rhythm section. While Prima & Co. were going wild on stage, the audience reaction was not mere enthusiasm; it verged close to hysterical approbation. Prima even became very popular on TV, to the point where he was being hailed as a rating saver.
In this CD, Louis and Keely sing their biggest hits, accompanied by the Prima boys featuring Sam Butera's big, rough, jazz-based tenor and uninhibited clowning.
