Description

"Hi De Ho" is an all-black cast film that features some great swing jazz songs performed by Cab Calloway and his orchestra.

Trivia

∙  "Hi-De-Ho" was made specifically for African-American audiences to be shown at colored theatres.  African-American films made during this time to be shown in colored theatres did not have the financial resources to make super high quality productions.

∙  Cab Calloway and his orchestra perform many great numbers in Hi-De-Ho including the following:
“Minnie’s a Hepcat Now”
“Dawn Time”
“Bop Bop”
“Hey Now, Hey Now”
“Hi-De-Ho Man”
“St. James Infirmary Blues”
“I Got a Gal Named Nettie”
“Don’t Falter at the Altar”

∙  Cab Calloway, who stars in this movie, was known as the “King of Hi-De-Ho.”  Hi-De-Ho is often used to describe “scat” which is a style of jazz singing using nonsense syllables such as “hi de ho,”  “skeeten” and “scat.”
