Chris Kenner !
Born in the farming community of Kenner upriver from New Orleans, Chris Kenner sang gospel music with his church choir, and moved to New Orleans in his teens.
In 1955 he made his first recordings, for a small label called Baton Records, without success, and in 1957 recorded his "Sick and Tired" for the Imperial Records label; Fats Domino covered it the next year and the song became a hit.
Moving to another New Orleans label, Instant, he began to work with pianist and arranger Allen Toussaint; this collaboration produced in 1961 a ton of classics hits.
In 1962 he produced his most enduring song, "Land of a 1000 Dances," which was recorded by Cannibal & the Headhunters, Wilson Pickett and The Action.
Yep, Kenner's recordings were marked by his rough-hewn voice and the elegant arrangements and piano of Toussaint.
Now dance, baby dance !!!
