American bandleader, singer and composer, known for his great "Minnie the Moocher." He was also an author, dancer and actor, a performer for more than six decades in nightclubs, Broadway and films. During the roaring 20s he played in Harlem's famed Cotton Club, coming to epitomize the hot Jazz Age. Always the last word in hip, Calloway became known as "King of the Hi De Ho," even publishing a "Hepster's Dictionary."
