Louis Armstrong: The Essential Collection (2CD)

Louis Armstrong: The Essential Collection (2CD)

Ref: AVC877

(UK Postage Free )


What can we say about Louis Armstrong that has not already been said before?
Not a great deal really so we will let the music do the talking for us!
On this wonderful collection we cover the early career of perhaps the most famous jazz musician of them all. We capture Louis when he truly was the greatest jazz man alive, including cuts from the famous Hot Fives And Sevens and moving through to the time he disbanded his Big Band and formed the six piece All Stars which was to be his standard line up for the rest of his career.
Also included are a number of duets with such greats as Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Jordan, Bing Crosby and Billie Holiday.
