Lil "Brown Gal" Armstrong and her Allstar Band - 2 Songs Added
- I've added Confessin' and East Town Boogie to:
Both tunes are pretty good. Lil Armstrong is under rated in my opinion but this often happens to women with famous husbands. Speaking of her famous husband, Louis Armstrong recorded Confessin' twice. The first time was in 1930 http://www.redhotjazz.com/sebastian.html when he and Lil were still married and then again a year after their divorce in 1939 http://www.redhotjazz.com/lao.html
On Lil's 1945 version of the song it is Jonah Jones playing the trumpet.
