Remembering Slim Gaillard

Slim was a talented multi-instrument player from the early 20th Century. In this video he plays the Piano, then the Guitar. I ran across this after buying an old Vocalion 78 at Goodwill for $0.50. Slim was part of a duo called Slim and Slam which were Slim Gaillard and Slam Stewart. On the 78 Slim and Slam do ‘Flat Fleet Floogie.’ (posted below the first video)
