The music of King Louis

Before Louis Prima, Vegas was a seedy gambling town known mostly for its mafia connections.  After his show revolutionised the city’s entertainment it became the number one showbiz destination. Frank, Sammy, Marilyn, Cary, Dean, they all came to see Louis Prima, along with the crowds who queued round the block till six in the morning.

And just when his career seemed to be winding down he had his biggest hit of all.  In Walt Disney’s “Jungle Book” he played King Louis the Most and sang I’m the King of the Swingers which turned him once again into a star

In this tribute, you’ll hear all the great songs
Just A Gigolo, I Ain't Got Nobody, Buona Sera, Angelina, Zooma Zooma, King of the Swingers, When You're Smiling,
