4893Re: [RedHotJazz] Re: Louis Armstorng later recordings
- Nov 1, 2007That's a surprise for sure. 1947 Boston concert, 1950 New-Orleans Function,
After : The Good Book and plenty of concerts and a wonderfull Musical
Autobiography, Last records : Louis Armstrong and Friends (RCA VICTOR).
Plenty of good musicians too : Jack Teagarde, Barney Bigard, Cozy Cole, Earl
Hines, Sid Cattlet, divers orchestras arranged bye SY Oliver and last but
not least the team he made with Ella.
By the way i would like to know more 'bout the pianist Charlie Segar (born ?
dead ? ) and i'll be pleased to get photographs of him, and i was wondering
if Mr Jay Mc Shann was still alirve or not.
HAve a nice day

I've heard it said (don't know if I believe it or not) that Armstrong
didn't actually play on any recordings after 1946.. That the only time
he played after that was on film and live... I.E. The Five Pennies.
