Babs Gonzales could probably come up with a really great and very hip definition of what Jive is. I can think of several, some of them very passe: that which is hip, that which is phony as in "you jive turkey".

But as used in this album and its predecessor, West Coast Jive (657), we refer to jazz and jazz-touched blues that is humorous, not too serious and at times deflating of the hautier members of society.
