Scat Man Crothers was amulti-talented entertainer of the old school. In addition to acting, he sang, danced, did comedy and played a number of musical instruments, including drums, ukulele and guitar.

Born Benjamin Sherman Crothers on May 23, 1910, at fifteen he got a job playing drums in a local speakeasy. Four years later he was touring the Midwest and wound up in Dayton, Ohio, where he found a job on radio station WFMK, where his style of singing earned him the name Scat Man.

His career gained momentum in 1943 with a booking at Chicago’s Capitol Lounge, and from there, he was off to Hollywood and Billy Berg’s famous Swing Club. Things slowed down after the war, until he recorded “Dead Man’s Blues” for Capitol in 1948, the same year he became the first black performer to host a TV Program in Los Angeles.

Playing as a single at the Oasis club, his big break came in 1952 when producer Albert J. Cohen offered him a part in his upcoming movie, Meet Me at the Fair, which started Crother’s extensive film career, including such classics as The Shining and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. But TV was where Crothers really found fame, beginning with Disney’s The Aristocats.

Until his death in 1986, he participated on countless shows, a work which earned him a star in the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Including accurate liner notes by singer and music historian Billy Vera in a well-documented 20-page boolet. Scat Man Crothers’ early recorded works are presented here for the first time, in his unique and personal Swing, Blues and R&B-tinged style. Enjoy his important but largely forgotten contribution to music history!
