Louis Armstrong Collection, Vol. 6: St. Louis Blues

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Twenty-three of Louis Armstrong's early big-band performances have been reissued complete and in chronological order on the sixth CD in this very valuable Columbia series. Armstrong, whose virtuosity and showmanship by the late 1920s could no longer be confined to a New Orleans jazz format, is heard supported by several different big bands including Luis Russell's Orchestra on these classic recordings. And while trombonist J.C. Higginbotham, clarinetist Albert Nicholas, and drummer Lionel Hampton are in the supporting cast, they are completely overshadowed by the leader. "St. Louis Blues," "Song of the Islands," "Dinah," "Tiger Rag," "I'm Confessin'," and "Body and Soul" ...

"St. Louis Blues," "Song of the Islands," "Dinah," "Tiger Rag," "I'm Confessin'," and "Body and Soul" are given memorable treatment, "Dear Old Southland" is a showcase in which Louis is backed just by pianist Buck Washington, and "I'm a Ding Dong Daddy" is a real tour de force. The latter piece has Armstrong forgetting the words in perfect rhyme and then scatting up a storm before constructing an absolutely perfect trumpet solo. Collectors will want to note that this CD has four previously unheard alternate takes including two of "St. Louis Blues." A gem.
