Friday Happy Feet

Louis Jordan was a fine musician, song-writer and showman. He began his professional career in the 1930's, and with his small group, the Tympani Five, handily made the transition from swing to post-war R&B. Here he is with "Buzz Me, Baby."

Yup, got the sex-o-phone front and center. Can you say "Baby Boom"?

Not far at all from there to "I'm a King Bee, baby, buzzin' all 'round yo' hive..."
