Reet Petite & Gone – This movie from 1947 features lots of footage of Louis Jordan & The Tympany Five!

I love Louis Jordan & The Tympany Five .  This feature film from 1947 has plenty of footage of Louis wailing on his alto and singing his sassy lyrics with songs like All For The Love of Lil, That Chick’s Too Young To Fry, his version of the kiddy song The Green Grass Grew All Around, and of course Reet Petite & Gone.
