"The Basin Street Revue" 1956 The Apollo Theatre

For African-American Music Appreciation Month we should remember that there's more to  African-American music than what we're hearing today. This movie I found on the internet archive is one of those gems that serves to remind us of our not too distant past. Filmed in 1956 at the Apollo Theatre in Harlem "The Basin Street Revue" gives us a clear picture of the music scene of that time.
Watch it, enjoy it, share it and download it and help to preserve the past in order to show our future generations.
