Known as "The King Of The Jukebox", he was highly popular with both black and white audiences in the later years of the swing era. Louis Jordan began his career in big-band swing jazz in the 1930s, but he became famous as one of the leading practitioners, innovators and popularizers of "Jump Blues", a swinging, uptempo, dance-oriented hybrid of jazz, blues and boogie-woogie. "Let the Good Times Roll" is a "Jump Blues" song recorded in 1946 by Louis Jordan and his Tympany Five. A mid-tempo twelve-bar blues, the song became a blues standard and one of Jordan's best-known songs. Louis Jordan is described by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as "The Father Of Rhythm & Blues" and "The Grandfather Of Rock 'N' Roll."
