About Jump, Jive an' Wail

"Jump, Jive an' Wail" is a 1956 jazz swing song by Louis Prima. It first appeared on his album The Wildest! and became one of his signature songs. Keely Smith, Prima's wife at that time, was one of the backup singers on the song. The song had a resurgence in popularity during the Swing revival in the late 1990s. The Gap used Prima's version in a "Khakis Swing" commercial in 1998. The Brian Setzer Orchestra covered the song on their 1998 album The Dirty Boogie. In 1999, Setzer's cover won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals at the 41st Grammy Awards. Louis Prima's version is used in the 2008 film Igor. The 1998 version was featured in the Stuart Little and Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie trailers.
