Slim Gaillard: 1945 Vol.2 (CD)

(1996/Classics Records) 20 tracks -

By the end of 1945, Slim Gaillard had become one of the most popular musical attractions in the Los Angeles area. In December of that year, he seems to have practically lived in the recording studios, quite apart from making his regular night-club appearances. All 20 tracks on this CD were recorded within that single month for a bewildering variety of tiny labels.

Slim Gaillard

The jazz world produced more than its fair share of individuals, and Slim Gaillard succeeded in becoming the most individual of individuals. Ever since "Flat Foot Floogie" hit the top of the Slim's life reads like a Hollywood script. He was born Bulee Gaillard in Detroit on January 4th, 1916, or if you prefer the other version in Santa Clara in Cuba on New Year's Day 1916.

The lyrics of "Floogie" were incomprehensible and from there on Slim went on to develop his private jive talk language, which Slim called Vout. By the mid-forties most of the hip catch phrases were derived from Slim's surrealistic jargon and were immortalised in 20th century literature in Jack Kerouac's key novel "On The Road" from which we quote the following extract.
