Big Bad Voodoo Daddy's retro-swing approach has its charms, but veteran swing fans may wonder why it's necessary to listen to a group of youngsters who take most of their moves from the original masters of the genre. BBVD address that question on HOW BIG CAN YOU GET?: A TRIBUTE TO CAB CALLOWAY. The album is an 11-track homage to one of swing's great figures, and the band does an admirable job of capturing the essense of Calloway's jumping jive, thanks in large part to the singing of Scotty Morris, who pulls out all the stops with his performances. Evergreen Cab favorites "The Jumpin' Jive," "Reefer Man," and, of course, "Minnie the Moocher" are on offer.
