Sax on the beach

I fully expect my blogging privileges to be revoked after that groaner.  But in the meantime, check out Louis Jordan as he throws himself a beach party of the shores of Lake Michigan, 1966. Via the JET magazine archives.  Also pictured, the "leggy lovelies" Agatha Collins, Gwendolyn Roberts and Phyllis Campbell.

Shoot The Juice To Me Bruce - Part 2 (Ed. Repost)

When Ichiban boss Debbie blogged a Nervous Norvus 45 here yesterday, I was reminded of the positively eye-popping NN photos buried deep within the Life magazine archives. Photographer Ralph Crane snapped these images back in 1956 and they seem to have been hidden away in the vaults ever since.

Since Life's photographic treasures are not always labeled with 100% accuracy, finding them was a real stroke of luck. Instead of identifying him as Nervous Norvus, he's dubbed "Nervous Nervous" in the archives! Anyhow, these are only a few of the Nervous Norvus pictures they've got stashed away over there. Check out some more. Sure, many of them appear to be duplicates but have a look anyhow and your day will likely be made.
