Jackie Paris

Just watched 'Tis Autumn: The Search for Jackie Paris a fantastic documentary about, to quote from the film, "The greatest voice you've never heard".

Well, I'd heard of him - he was a legend - but never actually heard him. However, thanks to Marc Myers and Jazz Wax I'm now a much wiser man and one who wishes he'd chased down those elusive recordings all those years ago.

Fortunately, there are some tracks available on Spotify and YouTube but me, I'm going down those mean streets like the Vinyl Detective in search of the real thing although I don't suppose I'll have much luck in Jarrow.
