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. 7 contains 20 tracks on a single disc highlighting his work with the Southern Serenaders, Clarence Williams' Blue Five, Fletcher Henderson's Orchestra, and Perry Bradford's Jazz Phools. While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it.
