Inhaltsangabe: Louis Jordan (1908-75) is the acknowledged father of rhythm and blues, the jazz saxophonist and vocalist whose inventiveness acted as a bridge between jazz and rhythm and blues, paving the way for Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, James Brown, and countless others.
By combining the music of his rural African-American heritage with the sophisticated sounds of nightclub bands, Jordan produced a unique style. His inspired vocals, blending the humor and pathos of his upbringing, soon won him a huge following. Jordan and his Tympany Five made a string of bestselling records that included "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby," "Caldonia," and "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie." Posthumously, Jordan's name has reached a new audience via the Broadway show Five Guys Named Moe.
"Singer-saxophonist Louis Jordan was the pivotal figure in the development of what would become known as rhythm and blues, and an important influence on such future stars as B. B. King, Ray Charles, Chuck Berry, James Brown, and Bill Haley....This biography, complete with a thoughtful analysis of all the musician's numerous recordings, goes a long way toward restoring Jordan's rightful place among the major musical figures of the century." --Express Books
". . . Chilton tells fascinating stories of the swinging 'battles' between big bands and the struggles of touring in the South, still very segregated during Jordan's heyday. Here, as in his biographies of Coleman Hawkins and Sidney Bechet, Chilton demonstrates that he may be the most meticulous of jazz biographers." --Booklist
"John Chilton has, once again, given us an exemplary biography of a jazzman.... [A] fascinating read...." --JazzTimes
John Chilton is the author of several books on jazz, including the Who's Who of Jazz.

From Booklist: Jazz historians remember saxophonist Louis Jordan and his band mostly for providing a key stylistic link between the jumping swing-band jazz before World War II and late 1940s-early 1950s rhythm and blues. Followers of the American entertainment industry see Jordan the singer as vitally helping to bring black popular vocal styles to a mass audience--albeit, some charge, disturbingly alloyed by self-abasement. Chilton's thorough biography covers all Jordan's personae, even though Chilton considers Jordan's music to be of primary importance. Thus, Chilton extensively details just about everyone Jordan played with, how his style evolved, and who influenced his playing, and he provides knowing analysis and criticism of Jordan's recordings. Although Chilton uses the testimony of Jordan's friends and relatives to limn his personality, deeper investigation of his psyche is largely absent. Even so, Chilton tells fascinating stories of the swinging "battles" between big bands and the struggles of touring in the South, still very segregated during Jordan's heyday. Here, as in his biographies of Coleman Hawkins and Sidney Bechet, Chilton demonstrates that he may be the most meticulous of jazz biographers. Aaron Cohen
