Word Jazz on the march...

The master of word jazz ,Ken Nordine, is back in his first DVD "The eye is never filled". Don't know who he is? Click here to read the article or here to go to "The eye is never filled" product page on Amazon.

And if you like all that there's a few vids of Ken performing online:

A student film with narration by Ken

and for fun a unique selection of 80's kids commercials featuring Ken doing the voice over for the "Side Winder" toy car.

From youtube:

Here is commercial break #2 from an episode of Tom & Jerry from Afternoon Fun on WFLD Metromedia Channel 32 in Chicago. This dates to October of 1985. Includes:

Afternoon Fun bumper (now back to Tom & Jerry) (Maggie Brock announcing)
