Does Cab Calloway deserve to be inducted as an Early Influence? Make that an emphatic YES! His showmanship, scat singing, and on-stage presence influenced a myriad of names in music: Louis Jordan, Dizzy Gillespie, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown, Michael Jackson (Calloway's The Buzz was an early version of The Moonwalk), and several other major names.

I don't think most people here even realize how important Cab Calloway is as an Early Influence to rock 'n roll. 'Tis a shame that a cultural phenom like Calloway can't even muster 10 comments, yet footnotes and nonentities garner enough discussion to fill a newspaper.

CORRECTION: International House was released in 1933, not 1993.
