JUST RELEASED:

Big Bad Voodoo Daddy – How Big Can You Get?: The Music of Cab Calloway
Americas favorite contemporary little big band, the award winning jumpin jazz / retro swing Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, has released a new album entitled How Big Can You Get (Big Bad/Vanguard Records).
The 11-song CD, their eighth album, is a tribute to Cab Calloway, the legendary band leader and jazz singer, and was recorded in honor of what would have been Cabs 100th birthday. How Big Can You Get is a career milestone for Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and not only as an illuminating revival of Calloways often hilarious (and just as often pointed) songbook, in the most skilled and enthusiastic hands imaginable.

SONGS ON THE ALBUM:
At the Jumpin Jive
Call of the Jitterbug
Calloway Boogie
Come On (With the Come On)
Ghost of Smokey Joe
Hey Now (Hey Now)
How Big Can You Get?
Minnie The Moocher
