Storyline

On many of the musical featurettes from the mid-50's on, until they closed the Shorts department for good, Universal resorted to just sticking an editor in a room, and having him scalp together a new-short from the footage in their old shorts. This compilation features Anita O'Day doing "Honeysuckle Rose" - The Conley Graves Trio does "Conley's Blues" - The Tune Jesters do "Dry Bones" - The Chico Hamilton Quintet performs "A Nice Day" and The Hi-Lo's rung through "Jeepers Creepers." The Buddy DeFranco Quartet revives what is the most-used film ever heard in films with a Universal logo..."I'll Remember April." Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>
