While he never quite gets enough credit, alto saxophonist/singer Louis Jordan was one of the fathers of rhythm & blues and rock & roll. Emerging from a jazz background (Chick Webb's big band), Jordan infused a scaled-down version of big band swing with fast-tempo blues and came up with jump blues, a joyous, upbeat style that laid the foundations for the mid-'50s revolution. LATER YEARS finds Jordan competing with the sounds that he helped to create, as well as revisiting some of his biggest hits from the '40s--"Caldonia" and "Saturday Night Fish Fry," along with some pop and jazz standards. While Jordan's popularity slipped during these years, he still had the right stuff--his recordings delivered the goods, and thusly, so does the two-CD LATER
