Otis performs his hit in the early 1960s
Johnny Otis, whose roots were in swing, had a long and wide-ranging career that found him organizing and leading r&b shows and having a few hit records.
“Willie And The Hand Jive,” which was released as a single in 1958, made it to Billboard’s Hot 100 and R&B charts.
For this version from the early 1960s which was broadcast on the Johnny Otis Show, its composer both sings and plays piano.
