Ella Mae Morse - Ghost Catchers

Ella Mae Morse was a good jazz singer and she also acted a little bit, here she is in a movie called Ghost Catchers (1944) where they successfully use swing music and swing dancers to chase away the ghosts from a haunted house. Watch the video clip from Ghost Catchers.

The lindy hopping is choreographed and uses a lot of air steps (aerials) and has that special Hollywood styling to it.
(Sorry, I couldn't resist: "Who you gonna call? Swing dancers!")

I enjoyed it. I've been poking around looking for videos and music by Ella Mae since I stumbled on her Cow Cow Boogie video. That one blew ne away.

When you listen to Ella Mae Morrse's voice as she sings, it's pure heaven. Her vocal style has yet to be equalled, in my opinion. A truly great singer - blues or otherwise!
