Description
I think Lilmom has submitted some of the great songs written by Louis Jordan and myself and the Easy Aces did his "Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby" recently, so here's another one of the incomparable Mr. Jordan's songs. The accompaniment is arranged and performed by London Arrangements using Cubase--it's an excellent job by them.

Thanks for listening and take good care now!

"Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chicken" was written by Louis Jordan (Copyright status listed as "unknown" according to The Public Domain Music Directory so I guess I be okay!)

Vocals: MJK
Arrangement and accompaniment: London Arrangements

I dig your swingin' style. Always dug Louis Jordan. Not nearly enough swinging nonesense songs these days. Very well done/sung, daddyo.

Mr. Jordan
Glad you are a fan of Louis Jordan--I've been one since my teens! You can still find many of his very entertaining and musically excellent "soundies" on youtube--they are great. Thanks again John and I'd be very happy to attend your CD party when it comes up! Look forward to meeting you! Michael

I did once hatch an idea about doing a chicken CD. You know, laid back stuff but hen I thought better of it. I'll get me coat.

Cheers

Mr Jordan has
some imagination finding song titles :-) It's really a cool arrangement, and what else would be better than having MJK vocals on this ?! Very cool !

PS : it's funny, I was just looking for a song about "he who reads these ancient words invokes the ancient curse of King Rootentooten Son of Queen Hotsitotsi" and I arrived here !

Yves!
"what else would be better than having MJK vocals on this ?!" Michael Buble vocals! Hahahahaha--just a little self-deprecating humor dere. Yves you were certainly a strikingly handsome youngster there in your picture! Thanks again, as always, for your kind support and encouragement and if there isn't any by that name, I think someone should write a "Queen Hotsitotsi" song--the worlds needs one, you know? You both take care now--Michael

Yeah, I can see you slip-sliding all over the place with those suds (maybe this should be made a new Olympic sport--not sure how popular it would be however!) Ah, you are so cute--thanks again and send my warmest regards to little Yolanda! Take care now, Michael

Thanks Dave!
Originally, I was going to make a semi-elaborate video with this track (even bought a farmer's type hat) but you know how clinically lazy and languorous I am--never got to it! Thanks for stopping by and laying down the kind words. Keep up the great work and CU soon! Michael

I believe there are more than just chickens in there. Every time I listen to one of your tunes, I'm sent back to the same nightclub where you're playing--to hear more of your swingin' gig.

Hey thanks Dave!
I used my own voice for the barnyard sounds and then coupled that with the same track only pitched up an octave--I think that worked best! As always, I truly do appreciate your listening to my stuff and for the generosity you've shown me--thank you! Take good care and hope your week is going nicely--Michael

One chicken, two chicken, me chicken, you chicken...
I guess that's got 'em all. Michael, I don't know how you can say that you are "clinically lazy and languorous" and keep a straight face. Judging by your out put and participation here, you are the least languorous chicken of us all.
BTW, nice job, as usual.

I'd say...
when it comes to the activity of poultry, my meager exertions would merit the "egg" rating probably (but I do have a lot of internal energy!) Thanks again Richard--I greatly appreciated hearing from you and glad you liked this souffle! Michael

Hey, welcome back from your vacation--I hope you had a thoroughly AMAZING™ holiday. Not much amazement to report back to you in your absence Ted--this reporting period was more of a genius interval, but I'm sure we'll be back in the running with more amazement in short order. Thanks again for your kind words--you take care now! Michael

I'm so behind in responding to my comments these days (blame work Bob!) I just love singing this song, the arrangement is outstanding (this guy does such marvelous work and if I ever forget to credit him, be sure to let me know--singing with work by guys like this makes it so much fun and a pleasure to work with). As always Mein Herr--thanks so very much for your support and kind words! Cheep-cheep! Michael

I remember as a kid my mom used to sing the hook. I didn't recall a tonic or melodic reference in her singer it. So after all these years, today is the first time I've heard this song. I thank you twice. : )

Thanks greatly Miche! There is one song I hear many internet singers perform, "It Had to be You" and every time, it was like they would make the verse up as they went along. Finally, I could not stand it any longer and posted my version with the melody line as written for the verse. Somebody commented that I should learn how the verse really goes! A little musical website comedy for you! You take care now and keep up the awesome work you share! Michael

Hey Charles!
I've never brought this up, but if there is ever a track I do that you'd like, just let me know (the fees I pay for these things allegedly also covers any licensing for internet/non-profit play) so it should be okay. Well, if you want some truly bad notes, I can post some of my stuff from when I first taking singing seriously (really, I don't even want to hear those things again though) but I think the secret to note placement is you have to hear it in your head just a nanosecond to aiming for it vocally. It kind of reminds me of sight reading at the piano: you play the notes you read but at the same time, your eyes are taking in the next bar of music even as you are playing the previous bar--it takes some time to learn that, but its along that line I think. Anyway, as always--thanks for your kind words and your generous support (and keep up the excellent work you present here too!) Michael
