Review

Review Text Although the illustration on the cover of this 2000 collection doesn't do justice to the highly animated persona of bandleader/singer Cab Calloway, the 28 tracks on offer present a wonderful sampling of the legendary artist's catalog. During the 1930s and '40s, Calloway ascended to the heights of big-band stardom, becoming one of the most popular performers in America, thanks to his gleefully mischievous smile, enthusiastic singing, and raucous stage presence. COCKTAIL HOUR features many outstanding Calloway songs, including his signature tune, the infectious sing-along "Minnie the Moocher," as well as the swinging "Are You Hep to the Jive?" and the "tasty" numbers "Everybody Eats When They Come to My House" and "A Chicken Ain't Nothin' But a Bird." Although this two-disc set is slightly edged out by Legacy's wonderful ARE YOU HEP TO THE JIVE? compilation, it still stands as one of the finest Calloway releases on the market.
