slim gaillard

http://blog.tilos.hu/malestripshow/slimg.jpg scat your tuesday away with slim gaillard, an avant-garde jazz vocalist best known for improvising with his voice. armed with fluency in eight languages, slim produced the vout-o-reenee dictionary, an archive of his scat language. one could call snoop's izzo an evolution of vout...but izzo's got nothing on vout.

this song isn't the most rib-tickling example of slim's vout out there, but there's something jolly and natural about laughing in rhythm. ironically, off the top of my head, the only people i can think of who laugh in rhythm are villains.
