Idolator’s Semi-Annual Reminder: Louis Jordan = Awesome

NPR Music has posted an nearly hour-long documentary on all-around music legend Louis Jordan today as part of their Jazz Profiles series, so if you know what’s good for you, head on over and download it. As Matos mentioned months ago, a Louis Jordan record and the liquor of your choice is a recipe for a party, and even the quickest glance at his history on the R&B charts of the 1940’s (including the 113 weeks total his records spent at #1) shows what how massively popular he was during that decade. Also, while the profile downloads, check out the “video” for “Beware”, an all too valid warning about the dangers that lurk in the dating world. [NPR]
