The little man (he WAS short) who requested Louis Jordan turned out to be Charles Vann, who became a mainstay on Tampa radio station WMNF 88.5, doing a jazz show for many years. In fact, a studio or something there is named for him.

He really knew his music but occasionally spouted some odd "facts":

"That was drummer Joe Jones, who later changed his name to Philly Joe Jones."
-- NOPE. Two different cats.

"That was bassist Addison Farmer, no relation to Art Farmer."
-- NOPE. They were twins!

For everyone who thinks he knows when rock and roll was invented, listen to Jordan play "Ain't Nobody Here But Us chickens" or "Saturday Night Fish Fry."


I have been saying this for years. "Saturday Night Fish Fry" is the original rock'n'roll. People tend to just look at me funny after that. Plus so much of his stuff is just jump up and shake music. There is a reason it is called Jump Swing. And folks these days are ignorant as to how big he was. Sinatra, Bing and Elvis big.

I am going to so enjoy meeting you.
