Explore the life of this pioneering jazz legend who charmed audiences with his bravado and showmanship. Cab led one of the most popular African American big bands during the jazz and swing eras of the 1930s-40s, with Harlem's famous Cotton Club as his home stage, best known for his 'Hi de hi de hi de ho' refrain from signature song 'Minnie the Moocher.'
Calloway was also an ambassador for his race, leading one of the most popular African American big bands during the Harlem Renaissance and jazz and swing eras of the 1930s-40s. American Masters celebrates 'The Hi De Ho Man's' legacy during Black History Month with the documentary Cab Calloway: Sketches premiering nationally Monday, February 27 at 10 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings).
