High Society – Pot and Jazz

Sendin’ the Vipers on a mad Lindy Hop!From New Orlean’s “Storyville” red-light district to Vansterdam’s Toker’s Bowl 3, tea-heads have been flippin’ their lids to jazz music. This show presents historical clips of some hot “vipers” and their “enhanced” performances, including Louis Armstrong, Gene Krupa, Cab Calloway, Mezz Mezzrow and co-host Bill Small’s swingin’ band: The Tall Brothers!
