midweek music: “Minnie the Moocher”

Last night, Wrenn and I went to see Big Bad Voodoo Daddy at BB King’s in Times Square. We’ve both been fans of the swing band since they released their self-titled album twenty years ago, and their show was superb. I was only able to get this one song on video, as my phone was not cooperating. You can hear me a little too loudly on the response bits (“Hei-de-hei-de-hei-de-hei”), but that’s part of the fun of a live show.

Best part of the show was right after this one, as they did back-to-back-to-back the following: “Jumping Jack” (which is my favorite song of theirs), “I Wanna Be Just Like You” (Wrenn’s favorite song of theirs), and “You Know You Wrong” (both of our second-favorites). It’s like they knew we were coming!
