Mom’s the word

Jackie “Moms” Mabley at The Playboy Club. Chess Records. (1961) Moms debuted in the twenties with Butterbeans and Susie at the Cotton Club, suffered racism on the chitlin circuit, was a regular at the Apollo for years and her album sales in the sixties made her the highest charting comedienne in Billboard history. I seem to remember her on TV doing the Merv Griffin, Mike Douglas talk show circuit. I think she took her teeth out and talked funny. A legend.

Silly rabbit

A hip little single from Playboy magazine that went to subscribers in 1957 in conjunction with that year’s first annual Playboy Jazz Poll. Included on this record are cuts from the Playboy Jazz All-Stars LP including “Play, Boy” by Shorty Rogers; “Fine’s Idea” by Charlie Ventura; “Sophisticated Rabbit” by Shelly Mann and “Joey, Joey, Joey” by J.J. Johnson. I collect Playboy related records so this is a nice one that’s pretty rare.
