Louis Prima has become a cult figure. He had been a jazz trumpeter in the ’30s and ’40s, and by the time he signed with Capitol in 1956 he led a hot combo with Sam Butera and ultra-cool Keely Smith. His music took its key from Louis Prima’s own exuberance. It wasn’t quite R&B, pop, or jazz, but it was, as Louis himself promised, ’The Wildest!’

This set includes all his 1956-1962 Capitol recordings, as well as Keely’s solo records. Songs include That Old Black Magic, Buona Sera, Just A Gigolo, Jump Jive & Wail, Oh Marie, I Ain’t Got Nobody, Banana Split For My Baby, Felicia No Capicia….and many, many more, including those great hard-to-find live albums. For unabashed good time drinking, whoring, and gambling music, Louis Prima can’t be beat.
