Louis Jordan - Saturday Night Fish Fry (1966)

From the TV show 'The!!! Beat' that was taped in Dallas, Texas and broadcast out of Nashville, Tennessee. (Or was it the other way around? Reports vary.)

The host is R&B disc jockey Bill "Hoss" Allen, the house band is The Beat Boys, led by guitarist Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown.

Jordan was 58 at the time, and kicks ass. His appearances on this show were apparently the only time his performances were captured in color.
