Ken Nordine was a spoken-word artist strongly influenced by jazz and this is his 1957 debut album album. A Highly eclectic mix of smooth voice narration, sort of zen-beatnik texts and West Coast Jazz arrangements as results of a fruitful collaboration with cellist Fred Katz group featuring the likes of Paul Horn on sax, flute and clarinet, and Chico Hamilton on drums and percussion. Still an innovative piece of work between spoken word, poetry and Jazz
Recorded in Chicago, July 1957
