Overview

The extraordinary 1924 recordings with Louis Armstrong are on the first CD, plus material from his long stint with Noble Sissle. The second volume includes the complete New Orleans Feetwarmers, and cuts with Trixie Smith and Tommy Ladnier. There was more splendid music to come from Bechet, but this will do as a start. ~ John Storm Roberts, Original Music
