This mix is dedicated to Slim & Slam, a 1930s-40s musical duo consisting of Bulee "Slim" Gaillard (vocals, guitar, and piano) and Leroy Elliott "Slam" Stewart (bass and vocals). The duo recorded novelty jazz numbers that featured Slim's distinctive vocal style, a hodgepodge of scats, vocalese, hipster argot, and nonce words. Slim & Slam influenced a number of bebop, R&B, and rockabilly artists, plus many beatnik writers.
