Jazzman... Movie Star... Songwriter...Hit Maker...Oh, and he 'Invented' Rock 'n' Roll.Nobody has a better claim to the title of 'Father of Rock 'n' Roll' than Louis Jordan. Long before Fats Domino and Little Richard, way before Haley and Presley - Louis Jordan was rockin' 'em in the aisles with hit after rockin' hit.Just listen to any track on this compilation - then check its date. You'll be staggered by its freshness, partly due to the genius of Jordan himself - and partly to the quality of the remastering. You'll marvel, too, at the familiarity of many of the phrases, licks and runs. Effects that many of Jordan's imitators happily took credit for.In fact, before you've got halfway through this stunning body of work, you'll have reached a simple conclusion:if there is a 'King', it's King Louis.
Think five discs and 131 songs is too much Louis Jordan? Not a chance. Not for a man who so consistently and so definitively achieved the elusive and delicate combination of musicianship and accessibility. Not for a man who paved new and vital musical roads without ever losing his sense of style or his appetite for fun. Covering Jordan's historic (not to mention commercially successful) Decca tenure (1938 to 1950), this amazing collection finds the alto sax player, songwriter, and singer building blues and swing into a hot mix that came to be known as Ramp;B, producing hit after hit with topnotch bands behind him, streamlining the big-band concept without diminishing the music's force. Much has been made of his role in the development of Ramp;B--and as a result, rock amp; roll--and his importance as a musical pioneer can't be underestimated. But all ideas about "historical importance" fade away as these vibrant, insistent, irresistible tracks roll by. --Marc Greilsamer
