Oscar McLollie & His Honey Jumpers

Many acts in the first ’50s were rooted in jump blues and not-quite-yet rock & roll, most of them played out and documented in LA, and many of these released records on the present day label. The obscure Oscar McLollie & His Honey Jumpers in shape all those requirements, though these were even more aligned using the jazzy leap blues than most such R&B performers. While he wasn’t a hitmaker or an originator, he produced fun, swinging edges that got their place as a number of the even more jazz-oriented early-’50s L.A. R&B. With a few of his middle-’50s edges he verged just a little toward early rock and roll & roll, especially on “Move Hot Rod Move.” His up-tempo edges for Modern had been collected for the 2003 Compact disc Hey! Lollie Lollie.
