Nina Mae McKinney #1 Scat Queen
9 July 2002 | by msladysoulSee all my reviews

Nina Mae McKinney is number 1, I have to say she was one of the best scat singing women of the 1930s. She plays a maid which is dreadful, and sings some stereotype song that some white person wrote of course, but Eubie Blake and his orchestra plays a great tune, and Nina Mae McKinney sings a great song, her rare beauty shines through, wish she could of dance to this. Nicholas Brothers dances great. You can catch this on Turner Classic Movies, if you can. It comes on every now and then.
