Roger, did Cab continue to live there, and perform? Of course he was in "The Blues Brothers," a really magical scene. He was one of the all time great performers (he couldn't have been a folksinger--folksingers don't wear white tuxes). There is a jazz/swing combo around here called Comfy Chair with a singer who reminds me of Calloway, despite the fact that he's white, kind of homely, and wears a purple double-breasted suit with a green shirt and a loud tie. It's just that he's a wonderfully expressive singer and dancer. I missed them today--they played on the Cal campus and I had wanted to go and photograph them but got lazy. --seed
