Product Description

Rhythm and Blues Revue (1955) Directed by Joseph Kohn and Leonard Reed

Cast: Willie Bryant .... Freddie Robinson Lionel Hampton .... Count Basie Faye Adams .... Bill Bailey Herb Jeffries .... Amos Milburn Sarah Vaughan .... Nipsey Russell Big Joe Turner .... Martha Davis Little Buck .... Nat 'King' Cole Mantan Moreland .... Cab Calloway Ruth Brown

This is a collection of exciting R&B performances from the mid 1950's, filmed at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem, New York City. Every performance is a gem. The genial host, Willie Bryant, keeps things moving and the lowbrow comedy from Nipsey Russell and Mantan Moreland helps create a wonderful "revue" feel for the show.
