Don't Be a Shvontz, Check This Out And You'll Plotz

This is an audio slide show about how Yiddish has influenced New York jazz, complete with cool image slide show and great comparison between a traditional Jewish folk song about a tailor, and the great Cab Calloway's remake/interpretation of it.

Great stuff. Watch it for the images, listen for the info, remember it for Cab Calloway.
