Famous Voice-over Actor and ‘Word Jazz’ Creator And Host Ken Nordine Dies
Ken Nordine’s voice was tailor-made for late night radio. His unparalleled, smooth baritone guided WBEZ listeners through the show Word Jazz for more than 40 years.

Nordine died Saturday at the age of 98, his son Ken Nordine, Jr. said.

... Nordine said his day job as the voice behind “banal, happy, didn’t bother anybody” TV commercials led him to create Word Jazz.

Nordine’s commercial credits included well-known brands, like this trippy 1971 Levi’s ad.
