Colors is a "word jazz" album by voice-over and recording artist Ken Nordine. It was commissioned by the Fuller Paint Company to write radio advertisement spots, but after a few commercials became popular, it evolved to become an album of 34 songs.[1][2] Each track personifies a different color or hue.[3]
