Cab Calloway & The Nicholas Brothers - Great American Entertainers

Taking a break from politics and current events. I was cruising YouTube and ran across a clip of three of my favorite performers, Cab Calloway and the Nicholas Brothers. This clip is from the movie, Stormy Weather, and it shows just how amazing tap dancing can be.

I was lucky enough to see Cab Calloway live once a few years before he died and he was amazing even then. Fred Astair called this number he "greatest dance number ever filmed." Enjoy and appreciate a truly American art form!
