Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On, Big Maybelle Smith (1955) Mabel Smith began recording in 1947 when she was 23 years old, yet she’d been singing in various venues since she was a child. She was the first to record Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On, produced and arranged by a young Quincy Jones for Okeh Records, and predating Jerry Lee Lewis’ version by almost two years. (Lewis liked the song so much he stole it, then credited Big Mama Thornton.)

Saturday Matinee – The Cabin Kids, Too Many ZooZ & Lucky Chops

The Cabin Kids from “Teacher’s Beau” in 1935. [via].

Too Many Zooz crank it.

Trumpet player Matt Doe, baritone saxophonist Leo P. and drummer David “King of Sludge” Parks have been rocking the [NYC] subways since August [2013]. Doe, 21, and Leo P., 22, first became friends while attending the Manhattan School of Music, while Leo P. and Parks played together in another busking band, the Drumadics. They all came together with a simple goal: to make some extra cash [via].

[h/t Bunkessa]

Lucky Chops is/are a bit more elaborate and include some cool moves (the trombone player even does the Mashed Potato).

Not bad for buskers. Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you shortly.
