| I Didn't Know Louis Prima Wrote "Sing, Sing, Sing"
Well, he did, and recorded it on February 28, 1936. Here it is September, and George Stoll and his orchestra are in September, as they kidnap Maurice Cass to listen to them play it, and "My Blue Heaven" as an audition for his radio show in this MGM musical short subject. That's another great song, and Stoll's group plays it very nicely, too.

Back to "Sing, Sing, Sing", arguably the anthem of Swing music, its best known version is the one from Benny Goodman's 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert. If it isn't, it deserves to be. That's not to denigrate Stoll & Company; their performance is lively and engaging. This movie only goes to show how quickly it was recognized as a great song.
