Catalogue Id:

Jiving Jamboree marks up your dance cards for 25 reelin' and a'rockin' sides from the late Forties, Fifties and early Sixties (the golden era of jump blues and rock 'n' roll). Opening in style with the Godfather of jump jive Louis Jordan and his classic Saturday Night Fish Fry, the album puts the listener and the dancer through their paces with Joe Liggin's rock hard rhythmic The Honeydripper, TV Slim's down-home shuffle Flat Foot Sam, Bobby Day's Rockin' Robin, Clarence Frogman Henry's New Orleans R&B powerhouse Ain't Got No Home (covered a decade later by The Band on their Moondog Matinee album) and lots of other goodies .This CD is bound to be in great demand in the many jive clubs and classes all over the world - in fact it was compiled by the UKs leading jive performer and teacher 'Rockin' Robin Weathersbee, who also wrote a 'history' of jive in the CD book.Jiving Jamboree simultaneously evokes memories of one of the great dance eras of the recent past whilst providing the perfect soundtrack for a new generation of dance-floor jivers. As Slim Gaillard used to say, this one's solid!
