"Jivin' With Jordan" brings you over 100 songs from the late, great Louis Jordan's years at Decca Records, roughly the late 1930s to the very early 1950s. The music ranges from big band swing to jump blues and beyond. Jordan was one of the most influential musicians of the era and is considered an early progenitor of R&B and Rock & Roll. Effervescent saxophonist Louis Jordan was one of the chief architects and prime progenitors of the R&B idiom. His pioneering use of jumping shuffle rhythms in a small combo context was copied far and wide during the 1940s.
