Original hand written Music Score of "Is You Is or is you ain't (ma' Baby)?" by Louie Jordan with Decca record 8659B. Louis Jordan (1908-1975), the father of the Rhythm & Blues, came out of the blues world of Brinkley, Arkansas, to play in Chick Webb's swing band from 1932 to 1938; he played alto sax and participated in comedy routines. He began recording for Decca in 1938 with his own Tympany Five, remaining on the label until 1953. He had his first million-seller in 1944 with "Is You Is Or Is You Ain't ( Ma' Baby)?" His music bridged the gap between the big band style and older school R&B through to the rock and roll of Chuck Berry and Little Richard. Jordan influenced many including Ray Charles, Etta James, B.B. King as well as countless rock and rollers. Music score in excellent condition. Record in very good Condition. Professionally framed.
