Louis Jordan

Video Find(s) of the Day

I think Louis Jordan is just inside my Father's dividing line between Music and the Junk Kids Play, on the Music side of it. After Louis Jordan came Shake, Rattle, and Roll, and nobody was trying to make music anymore, they just wanted to jump around, Dad said.

It's nice to revisit these old mile-posts.

The first -- The Green Grass Grew All Around -- is just... different.

The next two definitely inch toward Rock.
