Ken Nordine, Chicago creator of 'word jazz' who had a voice that 'could give you the chills,' dies at 98

https://www.chicagotribune.com/entertai ... story.html

Before you read the words written below about the life and times and accomplishments of a man named Ken Nordine, who died Saturday at his North Side home at the age of 98, it would be a good idea for you to listen to whatever you can find at http://www.wordjazz.com.

What you will discover is the one-and-only voice of Ken Nordine, one of the few people in the history of radio to use the medium to its fullest potential, rather than as a forum for blather, confrontation, inanities and noisy nonsense. He made a kind of vocal music as the voice of thousands of commercials and as the force behind a new art form he created and called “word jazz.”

Years ago, when I was involved in marketing and advertising, we spoke with about working with him on a project.
