GREENBURGH, N.Y. - A documentary on the life of former longtime Greenburgh resident, jazz singer and bandleader Cab Calloway will debut Sunday night on PBS.
"Cab Calloway, Sketches," which is part of PBS' "American Masters" series, is set to premiere at 8 p.m. on WNET/Thirteen.
The entertainer, who made the phrase "Hi-De-Ho" famous, performed for almost 60 years until he died in 1994 at the age of 86.
In the 1950s, Calloway moved his family from Long Island to Knollwood Road in Greenburgh to raise the three youngest of his five daughters.
After he died, his ashes were interred next to his wife, Zulme "Nuffie" Calloway, who died in 2008, at Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale.
