Jump Blues Music

Big Band Jazz, Blues, & Boogie-Woogie melded during the Swing era to create Jump Blues. Cab Calloway's band accentuated the rhythm. Slim Gaillard spoke-sang surreal songs over his bandmates' call & responses. Louis Jordan mastered high energy Jump Blues, and Louis Prima combined it with Louis Armstrong's vocal inflections.
