Red Norvo Goes Crazy – With Benny Goodman

You’ve got to watch this one. I’ve heard this was actually a regular bit that Red and Benny Goodman did, but I still thought it was great. Thanks to Troy Oppie for passing this along.

    Go, Zoot!
    Great to see the Hank Jones hands in action.
    The funniest things about this, in ascending order:
    1. Benny Goodman’s vocals
    2. Slam Stewart and his chorus
    3. Red Norvo’s jacket
