Jake Porter Combo E.P.

Jake Vernon Haven Porter (August 3, 1916, Oakland, California - March 25, 1993, Los Angeles) was an American jazz trumpeter and record producer. In 1951, Porter founded the label Combo Records, which was active until 1961 and released R&B and doo wop releases in addition to some jazz. Much of the material released on the label was recorded in Porter's basement, and he did a fair bit of songwriting for the releases in addition to recording duties.
This e.p. features 4 songs recorded between 1950 and 1952 and is quite a rarity. The songs are Beanville, El Toro, The Whang & Corn Pone Boogie.
