Description:

This film had put African American musical talents squarely center-stage, and the audience reactions had been remarkably enthusiastic. The film takes the form of a full-fledged rhythm and blues/jazz stage show - complete with an accomplished MC who gets the ball rolling with some good, old fashioned slapstick comedy featuring a mind-reading librarian. However, this is a music show.
