Danny Kaye & Louis Armstrong, scatting together

Apropos of nothing, except the fact that—had he lived—Danny Kaye would have turned 100 this year. Mind you, had he lived, Louis Armstrong would have turned 112.

Here we have those two great artists improvising and scatting around the song, "When the saints go marching in."

I've never been a big scatting fan but now, with your article, it's twice in three days that I'm loving it!

Here's Cyrille Aimée at Birdland in NYC earlier this year: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KPVbz9vb6hc
