Product Notes

Brother Bones recorded one of the most recognizable songs of the 20th century; "Sweet Georgia Brown" yet remains a virtual unknown, overshadowed by his own hit record and the world famous basketball team, the Harlem Globetrotters, that adopted it as their official theme. Brother Bones was a one-time shoe shine boy; working at stands in the vestibules of local barbershops. While shining he would whistle, snap his shoeshine rag and pop his brushes in rhythm to records being played on an old Victrola. Brother Bones became known around town as "Whistling Sam". He would also tap dance and play teh bones and knives, perfecting a style which used four bones in each hand, whereas most bones players used only two. Acrobat. 2005.
