4902RE: [RedHotJazz] Re: Louis Armstrong later recordings
- Nov 1, 2007Right Howard & Tony. There is almost no bad Louis, even the mawkish is
transformed by his sincerity and musical intelligence.
Later indeed the 'dedicated' albums, per Howard, are best together with
those away from the All Star treadmill where he still strove for those high
note endings. The Ellington, yes, and the Dukes Of Dixieland where, despite
a leaden rhythm section, we hear the best ever recording of his sound.
Yes indeed, also with non-jazzers. The Country & Western album. The Ellas
The Nina & Fred I would love to hear. Where is it Howard ?
