AllMusic Review by

This series on the French label Media Motion Limited/Masters of Jazz is of immense value to collectors of classic jazz. The sessions are in chronological order and usually include alternate takes of historic jazz with a strong representation of the swing era. Louis Armstrong 1925, Vol. 5 contains 23 tracks on a single disc highlighting his work with Bessie Smith, Fletcher Henderson's Orchestra, and Trixie Smith & Her Down Home Syncopators. While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it.
