A musical trend-setter who drew from big band, New Orleans jazz, rhythm & blues and rock & roll for his ever-evolving non-stop party sound, Louie Prima was truly a king of swing. With a resume that ran from composing the jazz classic Sing Sing Sing in 1936 to providing the voice for orangutan King Louie in Walt Disney's The Lion King in 1967, Prima hit his highest notes with wife Keely Smith, a deadpan foil with whom he shared a Grammy in 1959 for an unforgettable rendition of That Old Black Magic. This stunning shot of the two of them captures the Prima-Smith chemistry at its hottest, the way they were and the way we want to remember them.
