Josh’s Musings – The Wildest!

Louis Prima – The Wildest!: 3.5 stars

Precon: His name sounds familiar but I have no idea what this is. Judging by the cover, I’d say it’s humor oriented. Is this the guy that does Camp Granada?

Favorite Track: Nothing is the clear favorite for me so I’ll say Just a Gigolo.
Least Favorite: I don’t dislike any of them. Maybe Jump Jive An Wail because it’s so hard to separate from the Brian Setzer version.

Oh yeah I know him now. Isn’t this the stuff they always play in the Vegas montage in movies? I think I’ve heard it in a few commercials as well.
Nice Bix Beiderbecke reference on “The Lip.” Thinking of Bix always makes me laugh because one time I was watching Ken Burns’ Jazz and they were talking about him and Lauren says, in all seriousness, “His name is Big Spiderback?” Now I just wish there was a Big Spiderback for real because that’s an awesome nickname. “Look out Big Spiderback’s coming! And he’s pissed!”
I like the beginning of Basin Street Blues. I wish it continued like that.
Joyful, effortless singing and some pretty accessible jazz tunes. Not a bad combination.

He may look like just an ordinary pizza flingin’ oven jockey, but no—this dude can lay the smack down with the bets of em’. He’s Josh, the "Brick Oven", and he’s the owner and head cook at Josh’s Joint. Who does he lay the smack down on exactly? His customers, that’s who. Order something the wrong way—catch a body blow. Ask for extra garlic in a rude manner—smack to your grill space. Walk into his joint like you own the place—your head goes through the soda fountain machine right quick. This motherfu*ker doesn’t mess around. He once gave a dude an atomic wedgie and stuffed his face in a toilet just for calling him “chief”. Come in his restaurant talkin’ bout, “can I get some garlic knots”, while he’s watching Judge Judy, and you just might get your ass handed to you with a side of Josh’s famous pizza sauce. If by some miracle you are able to duck his punches or fight off his attacks, you then might be invited to his afterhours fight club, which he holds in the back alley behind the restaurant.
