Black Cowboy Star Herb Jeffries Still Kickin' in His 90s!

I hope this link works, as Herb Jeffries is amazing and should be read about! Even I had no idea he was still alive. I’m going to try to find a photo link, as this guy was hot.

Cowboy star, nuthin’! Herb Jeffries is an accomplished jazz singer–indeed, he was the male singer for the Duke Ellington band when they were at the peak of their powers in the early 1940s. His version of “Flamingo” was a massive hit. Great to hear he’s still around!

BTW, the above link doesn’t work, but here’s some info on him:

Fla-MIN-go!

(BTW, isn’t he the only surviving member of Duke Ellington’s 1939 orchestra?)
