Recordings you need to hear that you may have missed: Louis Jordan and his Tympany 5 

Louis Jordan and his Tympany 5

Go Blow Your Horn

Released 1957

You might think you've been having fun, but if you haven't heard a good dose of Louis Jordan lately, you're a bore. Louis Jordan is the connection between the Big Band era of the '40s and the rise of R&B. At one point in the mid-'40s, Louis Jordan's recordings held the #1 spot on the black music charts for almost a year. Go Blow Your Horn reflects the upbeat feeling of pop culture of the '50s and puts you on the street corner in the jumping jive world of this incredible sax player.

This record plays like a hilarious instruction manual on how to make your love life and night life fantastic. "Fat Back and Corn Likker" gives advice on the way to keep your woman by feeding her well (in summary - don't serve canned ham and beans). "Put Some Money in the Pot" talks about that guy we all know that tries to scam on not paying for drinks. "Dollar Down," runs through a fast talking story of making deals and getting into exclusive places on a night on the town.

Juice up that hi-fi and drop the needle on Go Blow Your Horn, the soundtrack for getting ready for a great night out.
