The Best of Louis Armstrong Review

by Michael G. Nastos

Doubling the size of the Vanguard collection of sides issued in 1975, these 1965 sessions hold up well over time. The pop tunes Louis Armstrong did, plus the historical data that suggest he was not that well-liked by the general public in this time period, make revisiting these mostly classic jazz songs and standards worthwhile. You hear 26 selections of relatively well-rendered and recorded Satchmo.
