Cabell "Cab" Calloway III: Profile
In 1990, Milt Hinton wrote this about Cab Calloway:
"Cab is my musical father. When he hired me I got a chance to make it in the big leagues -- travelling around the country and playing with some of the greatest musicians alive. There were only a few simple band rules. Most important was being on time. Just before a rehearsal would end he'd say, 'Remember, I gotta be there tonight, you'd better be here.' He always led by example, and if you followed him, there was never any problem."
