Louis Jordan was a prolific and influential jazz and blues bandleader, singer, saxophonist and style maker. Jordan was born in 1908 in Brinkley, AR. Jordan's father was a trombonist and had a carnival act called the Rabbit Foot Minstrels, in which the young Louis would take part. He later went to Arkansas Baptist College where he would study music. Once he completed his studies the family moved to Philadelphia, PA. This is where Jordan would first encounter piano player Clarence Williams, pioneering businessman and blues accompanist of the 20's and 30's.
