Playing tracks by
Eldee Young, Al 'Jazzbo' Collins, Ken Nordine, Annie Ross, Abbey Lincoln and more.
This upload was 100th in the #jazz chart.
Wild vocal jazz recorded 1952-1961 - featuring the jive street poetry of Babs Gonzales, beatnik humour from Al 'Jazzbo' Collins and Ken Nordine, bebop vocalese from Annie Ross, Mark Murphy, and Eddie Jefferson, as well as compositions by the pioneering songsmith Oscar Brown Jr and counterculture icon Lawrence Ferlinghetti.
As always, this mix was recorded from original LPs and 45rpm records. I hope you dig it. These cats sure were hip!
