We shared this clip on Facebook and didn’t feel it got the recognition it deserved. So we’re sharing it again on around the web on the Jukebox Saturday Night Website.
The Jumpin Jive is a catchy tune in itself by Cab Calloway.. but add The feats of the Nicholas Brothers and you have a great song mixed in with some unbelievable dancing.
At 1min 40 the Nicholas Brothers jump into the song… but just wait until the 4 minute mark for some serious acrobatic skills. Jumping splits from a considerable height that will make most gents cringe!
And the lyrics… love em! The Jib, jab, jump it’s a solid jive, makes you 9 foot tall when you’re 4 foot five…hip, hip… enjoy!
