A NATIONAL TREASURE

tone5446

I don't know if there is a memorial at or near the spot where Louis Jordan was born but there should be as he was perhaps one of the pivotal artists in 20th century American music. I think he ranks in importance with the likes of Elvis, Sinatra, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, BB KIng and Hank Williams. A quick look at his output reveals tunes that are still fresh today, clever lyrics (bit of a lost art these days), great instrumentation and very danceable. Apparently he always paid the writers of the songs he recorded, which may explain the quality of his material over such a long time. This collection is no exception as there ain't a duff track on this collection.

Just great!

Louis Jordan is top notch. As a musician & comedian few are his equal. And you'll search far and wide to find something as good as Louis' duets with Ella Fitzgerald. They even give "country" a little tease with "Ain't Nobody's Business But My Own". But this is Vol. 1 Disc 5 WHERE IS THE REST OF THE COLLECTION?

so clean, so pure, true roots

my-fi

The titles are funny, the players are pro, Louis Jordan is blowing out the blues form towards the only place it can go - rock and or roll. Highlight is Pops/Satchmo and Louis wishing death and ill will on everyone's least favorite mooch/hanger-on/snake and laughing through their co-solos, talking about getting their guns, and getting street on that Rascal.
