Tells Fairy Tales For Hip Kids - Al Jazzbo Collins

Tells Fairy Tales For Hip Kids
Released 27/11/08. 'Jazzbo' Collins defined a whole new way of presenting a music radio show. His speciality was cool and sophisticated jazz and he was one of the very first DJs to adopt an intimate, conversational approach peppered with hipster slang and outrageous verbal improvisation. In 1953, comedian Steve Allen wrote a piece for Down Beat in which he retold the story of Red Riding Hood in the hip argot of jazz, just as Lord Buckley funked up Shakespeare and the Bible. When Jazzbo read it out over the air in his best hipsterish storytelling tones the response from the public was fantastic and a hit single was inevitable the consequence. Subsequent releases found Jazzbo tapping into the modern obsession with flying saucers and all things 'far out'. In 1955 he also participated in a live recording called East Coast Jazz Scene, (that forms the second half of our edition) on which he interpolated comments between performances by a handpicked selection of some of New York's finest, including the great tenor saxophonist Coleman Hawkins.Tickets for the gig were made available only to listeners of his radio show who wrote in: needless to say the place was packed.
