AllMusic Review by

This series on the Ambassador label will be of great interest to collectors of classic jazz. The sessions are in chronological order and highlight alternate takes and radio broadcasts of historic jazz. Louis Armstrong's 1944-1949, Vol. 9 contains 24 tracks on a single disc, including versions of "Louise," "Lazy River," "Basin Street Blues," and "Blueberry Hill." While the disc is definitely directed toward collectors, anyone with an interest in this period of jazz will also enjoy it.
