I Want A Little Girl

Doc Cheatham & Arnett Cobb

Germany, 1987

Doc Cheatham is featured performing with Arnett Cobb during a live German TV broadcast in 1987 and accompanied by the “Barrelhouse Jazz Band.”

Later in life Doc would make an assessment of his own playing in an attempt to remove all trademark clichés from his style.

In 1977 he unwittingly launched a successful singing career during a recording session with Sammy Price’s band with a couple of choruses of “What Can I Say Dear After I Say I’m Sorry.”
