[size=150][color=orangered]Minnie the Moocher is a jazz song first recorded in 1931 by Cab Calloway and His Orchestra, selling over 1 million copies. The song is most famous for its ad-libbed nonsensical (scat) lyrics. In performances, Calloway would have the audience participate by repeating each scat phrase in a form of call and response, eventually Calloway’s phrases would become so long and complex that the audience would laugh at their own failed attempts to repeat them.
The song is based both musically and lyrically on Frankie “Half-Pint” Jaxon’s 1927 “Willie the Weeper” (Bette Davis sings this version in The Cabin in the Cotton). The lyrics are heavily laden with drug references. “Smoky” is described as “cokey” meaning a user of cocaine;the phrase “kicking the gong around” was a slang reference to smoking opium.

Calloway also wrote an extended version, adding verses which describe Minnie and Smokey going to jail; Minnie pays Smokey’s bail, but he abandons her there. Another verse describes her tempting “Deacon Lowdown” when she “wiggled her jelly roll” at him. Finally, they took Minnie to “where they put the crazies”, where she dies. This explains why both the short version and the long version end with the words “Poor Min, poor Min”.Minnie herself is mentioned in a number of other Cab Calloway songs, including “Minnie the Moocher’s Wedding Day”, “Ghost of Smoky Joe”, “Kickin’ the Gong Around”, “Minnie’s a Hepcat Now”, “Mister Paganini – Swing for Minnie”, “We Go Well Together”, and “Zah Zuh Zaz”[/color][/size]

Calloway was a master of energetic scat singing and led one of the United States’ most popular African American big bands from the start of the 1930s through the late 1940s. Calloway’s band featured performers including trumpeters Dizzy Gillespie and Adolphus “Doc” Cheatham, saxophonists Ben Webster and Leon “Chu” Berry, New Orleans guitar ace Danny Barker, and bassist Milt Hinton. Calloway continued to perform until his death in 1994 at the age of 86[/color][/size]
