Artist: Louis Jordan & His Tympany FiveAuthor: Bob Astor/George WilliamsLabel: DeccaYear: 1953
With a 15-piece orchestra, while it was Jordan and his Tympany 5 (a 7-piece at the most) who started the combo era, soon defined by Bill Haley (and all that rock 'n' roll). No wonder Bill engaged Louis Jordan's Decca producer Milt Gabler.
