Watch this video – pretty compelling to see how powerful music can be. This guy is catatonic – barely one step away from the grave. As soon as he is given music to listen to he comes alive. I don’t know about you, but I’m going to load up my IPOD with Musical Saw Music just to get ready for when I check in to a Retirement Center.
In the video, this guy tells us that Cab Calloway is his favorite musician. Cab Calloway was in the African American Big Band scene – playing at the Cotton Club.
