Louis Armstrong Mack the Knife 1959
Fortunately for you the humour grabs me only every other month, yes folks elderly inflicts another "inappropriate" retro video post.
Louis Armstrong, one of the most famous jazz musicians of the 20th century, and considered by some to have essentially invented jazz singing.
Mack the knife was originally titled "Die Moritat von Mackie Messer" which premiered in Berlin in 1928. In 1960 Ella Fitzgerald made a famous live recording in which, having forgotten the lyrics after the first verse, she successfully improvised new lyrics in a performance that earned her a Grammy.
