Possibly oldest music video?

I don't know about that for sure, but it's quite old. I saw this clip as part of a documentary about Count Basie that aired on Ovation last night. The singer is Jimmy Rushing, who was part of Count Basie's orchestra during the 30s and 40s. Okay, it's in black & white, the music is swing blues (jazz) and it's around 70 years old, but otherwise it bears all the marks of a modern music video. Watch it see if you don't agree.
