Encore un p'tit coup de Louis Jordan, puisqu'il a eu cent ans ce matin. Cette fois, il interprète Caldonia, à la demande du Clifton Chénier Fan Club de Nantes. (Toujours avec les Tympany Five, dans Swing Parade of 1946, de Phil Karlson.) On admirera le jeu de jambes de Big Louis, et les gambettes des chorus girls.

Walkin with my baby shes got great big feet
Shes long, lean, and lanky and aint had nothing to eat
Shes my baby and I love her just the same
Crazy bout that woman cause Caldonia is her name

Crazy bout that woman cause Caldonia is her name

Crazy bout that woman cause Caldonia is her name
