Louis Armstrong and King Oliver

All Music Guide - Rick Anderson
Louis Armstrong's tenure as second cornettist to the great King Oliver is one of jazz history's legendary apprenticeships, on a par with the one Miles Davis served with Charlie Parker or Stephane Grappelli's with Django Rheinhardt. Sadly, only a handful of recordings survive from this formative period in Armstrong's career; happily, all of them are available in this handy and generous package, which includes all 18 of King Oliver' s 1923 recordings with Armstrong, as well as a bonus appendix consisting of seven tracks recorded in 1924 by the Red Onion Jazz Babies under Armstrong's sole leadership and featuring, on one number, a very young Alberta Hunter.

Louis Armstrong's tenure as second cornettist to the great King Oliver is one of jazz history's legendary apprenticeships, on a par with the one Miles Davis served with Charlie Parker or Stephane Grappelli's with Django Rheinhardt. Sadly, only a handful of recordings survive from this formative period in Armstrong's career; happily, all of them are available in this handy and generous package, which includes all 18 of King Oliver' s 1923 recordings with Armstrong, as well as a bonus appendix consisting of seven tracks recorded in 1924 by the Red Onion Jazz Babies under Armstrong's sole leadership and featuring, on one number, a very young Alberta Hunter. The performances are as red-hot as you'd expect, and even the sound quality -- which one would expect to be terrible, given that all tracks were transferred form 78 rpm records -- is surprisingly clear, thanks to advanced digital wizardry. [Note: the material on this disc was originally issued on LP in 1974, and included two King Oliver and Jelly Roll Morton duets that are missing from the CD reissue. Those duets are available on another Milestone reissue CD, Jelly Roll Morton, catalog number 47018.]

    The true collector must own this.

    There isn't a serious jazz collector out there who can rightly call themselves such without bringing home this one and digesting it to the fullest. What you have here is a virtual holy relic, incomparable in its historical significance. If you're browsing for your next catch, do yourself a favor and stop right here. This is ESSENTIAL material.
