Yeah! Old Ken Nordine stuff reissued at half-a-midprice via the Real Gone Jazz budget reissue label (sublabel of Music Melon). Remastered from vinyl, at times, but both 2cd’s come with an okay booklet featuring discographical information … and don’t fully overlap with You’re Getting Better: The Word Jazz Dot Masters(released 2005-11-18 and spanning about the same 1957-1960 period). Also, Hip-o-Select‘s (sold out) 2cd doesn’t feature the Love Wordslp (1958) from which these four (out of twelve) jazz standard covers were taken … It does feature “Secretary”, though, which is orignally off the “Son Of Word Jazz” lp (Dot 1958). “The wanderer” is from the “Incredible But True” radio show hosted & narrated by Ken Nordine; some recordings released on lp by Columbia in 1951. Do note that there were 15 minute and 3 minute versions of the show syndicated, and both used the same host the most holy-o Ken Nordine! Addendum: apparently, Chrome Dreams have reissued the four Word Jazz albums on a 2010 budget 2cd entitled Word Jazz The Complete 1950s Recordings“; booklet and packaging aren’t half as cool as Hip-o-Select’s, though.
