Cab Calloway and Me

Next Sunday will see the premiere of Cab Calloway Sketches on PBS (check your local time), which is a wonderful doc by Gail Levin in which I was asked to render Cab almost life size on a wall.  The amazing animation at the end has Cab jumping off the wall and dancing with Alvin Ailey’s brilliant Matthew Rushing.  Animation by Asterisk Studios. Very honored to be involved in this tribute to the hide-e-ho man. Always a big fan of his and the great Harlem Renaissance. I saw Cab when I was a kid. Unforgettable.

Watch Steve Brodner sketches Cab Calloway Part 2 on PBS. See more from American Masters.
