Louis Jordan
“Is you is or is you aint my baby”

I gave this some thought. Where to go after “secret agent” week? Jazz/Blues Standards. You may be hearing things that are a bit obvious and played but they’ll be fun.

This particular song was probably my first exposure to “Jump Blues”, or any blues for that matter. When I was a kid, Tom & Jerry was always on the tube. There was a particular episode in which a female cat came onto the show and Tom sang this song to her. I remember thinking it was hilarious.

Louis Jordan was one of the biggest musical acts of the 1940s. He also played saxophone — That’s why he gets to kick off this week’s music.

From the Album: Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five
