One of the longest serving members of Cab Calloway's Cotton Club Orchestra-one of the most famous bands of the 1930s- and one of Jazz's greatest trumpeters. Doc Cheatam recalls with clarity and detail events such as his work as a saxophonist in 1920s Chicago, recordings with Blues queen Ma Rainey, deputizing for Louis Armstrong, working with McKinney's Cotton Pickers, Teddy Wilson, and Cab Calloway during the big band era, and his later career throughout the 1960s and beyond.
