In the early 50’s a performer coming up the ranks playing with jazz greats and creating his own style of story telling. Lord Buckley. He had appeared on Groucho’s TV show YOU BET YOUR LIFE and created a sensation amongst night club and cabaret attendees. Here is a version of Lord Buckley’s THE NAZZ performed by Rod Harrison from New Mexico at The Lord Buckley Birthday Bash held annually at The Bowery Poetry Club.
The event is produced by the writer of the definitive Lord Buckley bio DIG INFINITY, Oliver Trager.
