Louis Armstrong Recording

Armstrong Essentials

This is one of the best of the Louis Armstrong Compilations. Link. Opening with Armstrong blowing accomplished blues choruses on 1925’s “Sugar Foot Stomp” while a member of the Fletcher Henderson Orchestra, moving through his revolutionary Hot Five and Seven sessions and his years fronting and leading the Armstrong All-Stars, and concluding with 1968’s poignant summation “What a Wonderful World,” this lovingly assembled overview sketches a broad outline of perhaps the most important American musician of the 20th century.
