A NICHOLAS BROTHERS HOLIDAY (PART ONE)



What better way to spend the Thanksgiving Day weekend than by devoting four minutes a day to the Nicholas Brothers and their unbelievable dance acrobatics. Harold and Fayard Nicholas have, in my opinion, never been topped--not as swing, tap or jazz dancers. Here's a clip from the 1943 film 'Stormy Weather', featuring Cab Calloway among others. The movie itself is pretty silly but offers incredible glimpses of Fats Waller and Bill Bojangles Robinson among others. I'll post a Nicholas Brothers routine every day through the end of the weekend. Enjoy!
