A SONG IS BORN
Professor Hobart Frisbee (Danny Kaye) starts his lesson rather squarely but with the help of his talented friends Lionel Hampton, Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, The Golden Gate Quartet, Tommy Dorsey, Mel Powell, Louis Bellson, Charlie Barnett and more, he builds a song from the ground up. Great swinging tune from all the greats in this clip from the 1948 musical, A Song is Born. Thanks to jazzman Tom DeGraff for the tip.
