I think the greatest five days ...
- ... in the history of recorded jazz were those five days in May, 1927 when Louis Armstrong and his Hot Seven recorded those eleven tracks for Okeh starting with "Willie The Weeper" on Saturday May 7th and finishing on Saturday May 14th with "That's When I'll Come Back To You". This last track has a superb clarinet obbligato played by Johnny Dodds backing Lil Armstrong's vocal. The Monday session (May 9th), also issued as by the Hot Seven was actually a totally different group.
