Hail Cab

June 02, 1985

Leonard Feather is surely entitled to his opinion regarding Cab Calloway's place in jazz history and his recent performances at the Vine St. Bar & Grill ("Cab Calloway 'n All That Jive," May 16).

But shouldn't Feather's piece, in the spirit of reporting the whole truth, have conveyed something of the warmth and humanity of this man, the celebratory tone of the evening, or at least the incredible stamina of this survivor of survivors?

At this point in Calloway's career, Feather's carping seems uncivilly mean-spirited.
