i think this sums up the great man's glorious career:
Born with the Orleans News on-- December 7, 1910, Louis PRIMA was a genii's Bean... Louie Prima is most known going back to 1956 also Wildest, in which appear Just has a gigolo on Marie... With Lime, it played with the orchestra of Sam Butera, Witnesses with the Kaspar Lounge, smallest of the large living rooms of the Sahara hotel of Las Vegas. Married five times, divorced as much, this wire of Italian emigrants who passed for a mongrel because of his basin dye left in annals of Las Vegas the memory of a doubled public entertainer of a heat inconstant rabbit. Struck of a concussion in 1975, he died after three years of coma. He was the inventor of the rate/rhythm ninny, that which had known to mix rigmarole, swing, pop music and quadruple-professional.
In the early thirties trumpeter/showman Louis Prima ( b.1910) played in New Orleans in the "Courtyard Club" on Bourbon Street. He moved later to New York and started the " Famous Door" on 52nd Street.
This 1937 film clip starts with a short conversation between Prima and some customers in the Famous Door and then the band plays Basin Street Blues in what looks like a New years party.
