Laughing In Rhythm


One of the most eccentric vocalists ever to hit the jazz scene, Gaillard became a legendary cult figure thanks to his own privately invented jive dialect, 'Vout'. He was in fact a gifted linguist (speaking at least eight languages fluently), fine singer, good dancer and natural musician: a good guitarist who also played decent piano (with the back of his hands), vibraphone (with swizzle sticks), double bass (below the bridge), bongos, trumpet, trombone, tenor sax and organ. These 102 jazzy expositions from 1937-1952 are a master class in right-orooni, including all of his best loved numbers, from "Flat Foot Floogie" via "Tutti Frutti", "Slim Slam Boogie", "Cement Mixer (Put-Ti, Put-Ti)", "Jumpin' At The Record Shop" and "Opera In Vout" to "Potato Chips", with fine musicianship throughout. An illustrated, authoritatively annotated, 44-page booklet with full discographical details completes this tribute to the spaced-out musical humorist who spread joy wherever he appeared.
