Buona Sera


Louis Prima's hot trumpet and horny vocals aided by his hot combo The Witnesses, led by tenor saxophonist Sam Butera, and Keely Smith's clear jazzy vocal, dispensed an exciting mixture of jazz, bop, R&B and novelty that successfully entertained music lovers in the late 1950s. Louis Prima was not just Louis Prima - he was the "Big Daddy" of them all! And he was the leader of the most talked about attraction in America. This box set, containing 80 tracks, catches them at their ebullient best. Also included is a 24 page book with the Louis Prima story, discography and rare photos.
