Early Satch: 1923-1929

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
Louis Armstrong's recording career lasted an impressive 47 years. The seminal trumpeter/cornetist/singer was first recorded as a sideman in 1923, and his final album as a leader came in 1970 the year before his death. Spanning 1923-1929, this 65-minute, 21-track CD takes an exciting look at Armstrong's early output and underscores the fact that he would have gone down in history as a legend even if he had quit recording before the '30s. Early Satch isn't meant to tell the entire story of his pre-1930 work -- Armstrong was quite prolific during the '20s, and a single CD couldn't possibly tell us the whole story. Rather, Early Satch summarizes his '20s accomplishments and ...

All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
Louis Armstrong's recording career lasted an impressive 47 years. The seminal trumpeter/cornetist/singer was first recorded as a sideman in 1923, and his final album as a leader came in 1970 the year before his death. Spanning 1923-1929, this 65-minute, 21-track CD takes an exciting look at Armstrong's early output and underscores the fact that he would have gone down in history as a legend even if he had quit recording before the '30s. Early Satch isn't meant to tell the entire story of his pre-1930 work -- Armstrong was quite prolific during the '20s, and a single CD couldn't possibly tell us the whole story. Rather, Early Satch summarizes his '20s accomplishments and does so with fine results. The earliest selections take us back to a time when Armstrong hadn't started recording as a leader; he is employed as a sideman for King Oliver on "Tears" in 1923, Fletcher Henderson on "Shanghai Shuffle" in 1924, and Clarence Williams in 1925. Most of the 1926-1929 material, however, finds Armstrong leading his revolutionary Hot Five or Hot Seven groups, which changed jazz from ensemble-oriented improvisation to soloist-oriented improvisation. From the beginning, jazz was about improvisation and spontaneity -- Armstrong didn't invent the idea of jazz improvisation which goes back as far as Buddy Bolden in the 1890s, but he did popularize the melody/improvised solos/melody format as opposed to melody/group improvisation/melody. Early Satch boasts some of the Hot Five or Hot Seven's most essential gems, including "Struttin' With Some Barbecue," "Mahogany Hall Stomp," "Big Butter and Egg Man," and "Heebie Jeebies" the first recorded example of Armstrong scat singing. Again, Early Satch doesn't cater to completists, but the disc offers considerable rewards if one is looking for a concise overview of Armstrong in the '20s.
