Product Description:

Personnel includes: Louis Jordan (alto saxophone); Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong.
This reissue captures a particularly creative period for Louis Jordan and his band, and these two discs contain no less than 48 tracks of pure, mad Jordan genius. All of these tunes are necessary Jordan faves, and the best of them, "Lay Something on the Bar," "Fat Sam From Birmingham," "I Didn't Know What Time It Was," "A Man's Best Friend Is a Bed," "You Rascal You," "Blue Light Boogie," and a truly endearing read of "All of Me," are among the greatest jump jazz tunes of all time. ~ Thom Jurek
