Overview

In 1947, Armstrong put together his first set of all-stars, including many old friends and colleagues. With Jack Teagarden as the constant on the majority of these sides, we see the personnel shift by year's end, bringing Peanuts Hucko and Barney Bigard into the clarinet seat, with drumming chores split between George Wettling, Cozy Cole (on a four-song orchestra date), and Big Sid Catlett. Kicking off with six tunes from the May 1947 New York Town Hall concert, the set also features a two-song Giants of Jazz session, with Pops in the company of Benny Goodman, Tommy Dorsey, Charlie Barnet, Lionel Hampton, Mel Powell, and Louis Bellson, and finishes up with four more studio sides and four performances from a 1947 Decca concert album recorded at Boston's Symphony Hall. This is Pops moving from his big-band sound to a smaller, more comfortable group, getting ready for another run at success.
