Slim & Slam
Slim & Slam was a musical partnership in the late 1930s and early 1940s consisting of Bulee "Slim" Gaillard (vocals, guitar, vibes and piano) and Leroy Elliott "Slam" Stewart (bass and vocals). They produced novelty jazz numbers featuring Slim's distinctive vocal style with vocalese and scats, hipster argot and nonce words. Sam Allen played piano and Pompey "Gus" Dobson played drums on most of their early recordings.
Their biggest hits were "Flat Foot Floogie (with a Floy Floy)", "Cement Mixer (Puti Puti)" and "The Groove Juice Special (Opera in Vout)".
