In this fictional-story short (which takes Self listings out of the equation), George Stoll (as Georgie Stoll) and his hot-swing band, and the band's singer, Virginia Dale, are in the Globe Broadcasting Co. building hoping to get an audition. Recognizing the president of the radio company, Royal C. Cummings (Maurice Cass), as he enters the elevator, Stoll and band members, with their instruments, enter it with him. They toss out the operator and proceed to audition for the outraged Cummings, while making many up-and-down trips on the elevator. Once off the elevator he summons the police who promptly arrive and mistakenly arrest the studio orchestra. Georgie Stoll (as he was most frequently billed) and his band get the gig as their replacement, and a contract. The singing of Virginia Dale (nee Virginia Paxton) didn't hurt their chances any at all.Written by

I Didn't Know Louis Prima Wrote "Sing, Sing, Sing"
Well, he did, and recorded it on February 28, 1936. Here it is September, and George Stoll and his orchestra are in September, as they kidnap Maurice Cass to listen to them play it, and "My Blue Heaven" as an audition for his radio show in this MGM musical short subject. That's another great song, and Stoll's group plays it very nicely, too.
Back to "Sing, Sing, Sing", arguably the anthem of Swing music, its best known version is the one from Benny Goodman's 1938 Carnegie Hall Concert. If it isn't, it deserves to be. That's not to denigrate Stoll & Company; their performance is lively and engaging. This movie only goes to show how quickly it was recognized as a great song.
