… here we go with two swingin’ cats who dedicated their rendition of Oh When The Saints (Go Marching In) to a bunch of great composers.
This version has been first introduced in the film “The Red Nichols Story” a.k.a. The Five Pennies (1959).
The rare 2nd clip on the bottom shows a live-performance from some years later.
Three lines stand out as my absolute favorites:
Danny: “Uh, of Korsakov!”
Danny: “Ravel and Gustav Mahler.”
Pops: “Yeah, but don’t forget Fats Waller.”
Feel free to figure the rest out for yourself.
P.S. — Danny: “Joseph Haydn.” Pops: “Who?” Danny: “Haydn!”
Pops: “Well, let him come out!”🙂
Here’s the grandiose version they did in the film:
This here’s not so different from the film version, but it’s with a real audience!
