I plan on bringing this to Marc & Ellen the next time they do a 50's sampler.

Alas, today I got the news that Johnny Otis, composer of the hit hand jive tune "Willie and the Hand Jive", as described above, has died at the age of 90 after a long career in music and social justice.

RIP Johnny, and thanks for the tunes.
