Hey Everybody It’s




This is the first time this music is being released on CD. The 22 tunes on this CD (68 min.) are from three radio broadcasts in Los Angeles in 1943, 1948 & 1949. The repertoire features many Louis Jordan original compositions. Louis Jordan was tremendously popular in the U.S. at the time of these recordings and all through the 50’s. During the period when these recordings were made, he was at the peak of his musicianship, showmanship and popularity. Louis Jordan combined showmanship and musicianship; he was a marvelous instrumentalist and vocalist, radiating plenty of musical energy on stage, and he could be very funny. Included on this CD are some of his most popular tunes, like for instance "Five Guys Named Moe". The style of the music is mostly up-tempo swing jazz and rhythm & blues, with plenty of humor.

Louis Jordan – alto saxophone and vocals, Eddie Johnson, Josh Jackson – tenor saxophone, Eddie Roane, Aaron Izenhall – trumpet, Arnold Thomas, Bill Davis, Bill Doggett – piano, Po Simpkins,, Dallas Bartley, Bob Rushnell – double bass, Shadow Wilson, Chris Columbus, Joe Morriss – drums, Peggy Thomas, Bixie Crawford – vocals
