Louis Jordan was at the height of his fame during the period covered by this Classics CD. His last session from 1947 is here along with the music recorded during his first five recording dates of 1949. Among the hits are "Safe, Sane and Single," "Beans and Corn Bread," "School Days," and the two-part "Saturday Night Fish Fry." Jordan's Tympany Five had grown to seven pieces by late 1947 and expanded to nine in 1949; among his sidemen were trumpeter Aaron Izenhall, Eddie Johnson, or Josh Jackson on tenor and pianist (and future organist) Bill Doggett. In addition to such favorites as "Don't Burn the Candle at Both Ends," the catchy "Cole Slaw," and "Hungry Man," there are two songs ("Baby, It's Cold Outside" and "Don't Cry, Cry Baby") in which Jordan shares the vocals with Ella Fitzgerald. Highly enjoyable music.

A fresh sort of setting for Clarence Gatemouth Brown – as the session focuses his bluesy talents on the music of Louis Jordan – a combination that comes across surprisingly well on this early 70s set! The tunes are mostly numbers from the 40s vintage of Jordan's big years of recording – but they're nicely recast here in a smaller combo mode, with more distinct touches of electric blues and jazz – thanks to Brown's work on guitar, the Hammond of Milt Buckner, and tenor of Arnett Cobb! Clarence takes the tunes in an easygoing vocal style that's maybe more his own than Jordan's – which is a great way to change up the tunes – and titles include "Ain't Just Alike A Woman", "Somebody Done Changed The Lock Of My Door", "Salt Pork West Virginia", "It's A Low Down Dirty Shame", and"Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby".
