Jazz and Food
posted:
I did this image for a food magazine called Gastronomica.  The story is about the intersection of Jazz and food.  The musicians pictured are Fats Waller, Louis Jordan, and Bulee "Slim" Gaillard.  Some of the songs discussed in the article are Waller's You're Not the Only Oyster in the Stew, and Jordan's Saturday Night Fish Fry and Fish and Cornbread. 

A video clip of Waller's Honeysuckle Rose is below.  There are probably people out there that know a lot more about all of these songs.  It was fun to research and find some songs I hadn't heard before.  For a larger view, go to this link.
