Background: Released in 1958, Son of Word Jazz was the third album by voiceover artist Ken Nordine.
He’s accompanied by the “Fred Katz Group,” which was actually Chico Hamilton’s band recording under a different name.
When voice-over master Ken Nordine released his first Word Jazz album, it created enough of a stir to justify a small string of sequels. The second release in the series (aptly titled Son of Word Jazz) hit just one year later. The formula this time out is pretty much the same, with Nordine delivering poetry over top of jazzy backing by the Fred Katz Group. … despite moments of brilliance, only a few of them connect on the same level as the tracks on the first album did. It’s possible Nordine realized this before heading into the studio again, because the third album in the Word Jazz series, Next!, featured a new backing band and a slightly different direction.
