Editorial Reviews

2008 release. Al 'Jazzbo' Collins defined a whole new way of presenting a music radio show. His specialty 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. On this collection, hear that hip tale and many more. El Records.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD is like, THE MOST, to say the least !! January 24, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Finally!!!!! Él records gets a million purple mushrooms for releasing this fabulous stuff from my late friend, alberto-reeneemo. I must also give the folks at Él, high marks for such clean transfers. I was lucky enough for Al to have given me some of the original 78's, and as most anyone would know, there is more than enough work to do in order to clean them up. This material is quite rare, and is just the thing to massage anyone's lobes. Again, kudos to the cats at Él.

5.0 out of 5 stars Al "Jazzbeau"Collins at his best January 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the final cd acquisitions before my wife put the hammer down;"You will never live to listen to all your vinyl, and now cd replacements". A valid point, but how neat it was to get this cd of some of Al "Jazzbo" Collins signature hip fairy tales. Jazzbo takes us back to that wonderful jazz era of the 50's. There is also a collection of straight ahead jazz from the era, including a riff on jazz vibes styles, and a number by the great Coleman Hawkins. Buy it for yourself, not the kids. They won't enjoy it; how hip can a kid get?but you will. Put it in the car stereo and I predict you will get to work with a smile on your face. Wifey wants me to start selling my collection on Amazon. This will be among the last to go. (Plus, you can and should get it new.) I only wish that Doctor Jazz or its assignee would reissue on cd the 1983 vinyl: "Al Jazzbeau Collins & Slim Gaillard..Steve Allen's Hip fables"..really hard to play that record in the car, no matter how hip I feel. These are the essence of jazz humor, elegance and understatement, right up there with Dave Frishberg and Bob Dorough, and Mose Alison, whose paths I am sure have crossed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazzbo collins, finally!!! October 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In the days of 78 rpm discs, I owned these hip fairy tales on two crisp black records. One day a friend got a Werlitzer juke box which played 78's and convinced me that these records belonged in his machine. I agreed and gave them to him. He got transfered and had to move. My fairy tales left with him in his bubbling machine. They were no longer available. New formats came in and they were not re-issued. I searched off and on for years to find copies but met only dead ends and reluctantly gave up. Five years ago (I was 65) I got my first PC. Searching for a jazz cd's several weeks ago I inadvertently came up with...."Jazzbeau"... and the search was alive again!!! I had no luck until I tried Amazon.com. BINGO..There it was. First hit! In cd format. Ordering was simple, payment a snap and delivery swift. I opened the cd and and just seeing the cover put me in the "land of oo-bla-dee". 78's had no covers! But here was a picture of Al 'jazzbo" Collins. I sat back and listened for the first time in over 35 years....Once upon a time.......!!!What a gas. And there was more...which were totally new....and some great jazz groups AND!!!!! Can you Imagine this??? Coleman Hawkins...speaking!! and then warming up and THEN playing The man I Love!!!I was truly impressed with this album. The only thing missing was the hiss, crackle and pop of the original 78's

5.0 out of 5 stars Saddle Up A Satellite December 27, 2011
By andy7
Format:Audio CD
This record's the most, I dig it to the 25th power. "Sam" reminds me of Dr. Seuss and "Max" is out of this world, and it doesn't get much wilder than when Jazzbo tells fairy tales in Spoonerisms. Weally riled, baby!
