AllMusic Review by

HEP CATS & COOL JIVE compiles 15 tracks from bandleader/singer Cab Calloway's swinging heyday in the 1930s and '40s. In addition to Calloway's buoyant, giddy vocal performances, the disc also features jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie (trumpet) and Milt Hinton (bass). Although this collection isn't quite as comprehensive as ARE YOU HEP TO THE JIVE? its remastered sound and excellent selections make it one of the finest Calloway sets available.
