The Four Vagabonds

Profile:
US-American vocal band, grandfathers of R&B harmony and radio stars of the early and mid 1940s. Their 1946 Apollo recording sessions links them to R&B recording history. Their songs some also blues-oriented are exceptionally accurate especially for the lead vocalist John Jordan and for their impressive horn imitations is impressive not because it sounds so much like a brass band, but because the group managing to make it gorgeous beyond description.
