Louis Jordan soundtraps
Annie Van Auken | Planet Earth | 02/01/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"LOUIS JORDAN ON FILM contains some amazing celluloid performances, including a breathlessly-fast "Caldonia." This particular version (song #14) of the Jordan original clocks in at a minute and a quarter!

Many of the selections featured on this set were originally "SOUNDIES," a unique but short-lived video jukebox format popular in 1943-'45. Soundies circumvented wartime restrictions against new record releases by presenting musicians on brief pay-per-view movie loops.

Unfortunately, a well-intentioned album concept is spoiled here by audio limitations. Some tracks have extraneous clicks while others fade abruptly. Much of this collection is midrange-only, muffled, distorted in places and somewhat unpleasant to listen to. Only recommended for Jordan fans who don't already have these takes on other albums.
