By combining the music of his rural African-American heritage with the sophisticated sounds of nightclub bands, Jordan produced a unique style.

His inspired vocals, blending the humor and pathos of his upbringing, soon won him a huge following.

"Singer-saxophonist Louis Jordan was the pivotal figure in the development of what would become known as rhythm and blues, and an important influence on such future stars as B. B. King, Ray Charles, Chuck Berry, James Brown, and Bill Haley...This biography, complete with a thoughtful analysis of all the musician's numerous recordings, goes a long way toward restoring Jordan's rightful place among the major musical figures of the century".
