Louis Jordan Father Of R&B

Louis Jordan the father of Rhythm and Blues is from Brinkley, Arkansas. When I talk Arkansas musicians to people in Arkansas most don't know who he is... so sad. Check out this site http://www.louisjordan.com/history.aspx and the youtube videos below.

  3. When Chuck Berry was on the Tonight Show, Johnny asked him who invented Rock and Roll.

    Berry, who didn't really want to be there, muttered "Louis Jordan".

    In fact, everything was invented by Louies:
