I’ve been creating some pieces loosely inspired by Ken Nordine’s Word Jazz – narration over background music.
Nordine is one of my early, big influences. He told tales and made commentary on the world with a fabulous, mellifluous voice over the sounds of cool jazz by the Fred Katz group.
I listened to the albums over and over and over when I was a kid.
First up is “Actual Factual”, a laid-back groove in which I have something to say about disinformation. Of course, there is accordion.
