It's time to pay our respect to Louis Jordan. This record is uncharacteristic of his sound. No jump blues, but it's a swinging one-two punch nonetheless. The A-side, the standard "Paris Blues," is a lovely ballad with a sweet sax solo by Jordan. I'll send this out to our readers in France. In case you don't know, Paris in the springtime is cold and rainy. The B-Side is a mambo of the New Orleans classic. I first heard it as a slightly enlightened, yet ignorant teenager by another group of degenerate English record collectors. This version is smokin'. Dig the marimba and have a good weekend.
