Saturday Matinee – UFO Intro, Cab Calloway with Al Morgan, & Mitch Woods with Pinetop Perkins

UFO was a 1970 British sci-fi TV series with the premise that the earth is invaded by aliens in the distant future: 1980.

From the 1933 W.C. Fields film International House, Cab Calloway‘s “Reefer Man” is some hot jumpin’ jazz featuring Al Morgan slappin’ bass.

Mitch Woods‘ Boogie Woogie Blowout” at Yoshi’s, Oakland, CA. Nov 19, 2009. Pinetop Perkins (1913-2011) is featured. Jump to 01:30 for the music. Mr. Perkins (96 years old at the time of this recording) wanders on stage to kick ass just past 03:00. [h/t trebob]

“Too hot to handle and too cold to hold” is a recurring theme of The Saturday Matinee. Have a great weekend, folks.
