Storyville Louis Armstrong

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Marisa Brown
Celebrating the relaunch of the seminal European jazz label Storyville (after it was bought from European music publisher Music Sales Group in early 2006), the company decided to release the first six albums in its Masters of Jazz series, one of which is a collection of work by Louis Armstrong. Most of the tracks (the first 14) come from a recording in Chicago during a 1962 session (with Billy Kyle, Billy Cronk, Trummy Young, Joe Darensbourg, and the great Danny Barcelona completing the band), which means that Armstrong is in full pop mode, and the songs included ("The Bucket's Got a Hole in It," "La Vie en Rose," "High Society Calypso," "Mack the Knife") showcase that: ...

Most of the tracks (the first 14) come from a recording in Chicago during a 1962 session (with Billy Kyle, Billy Cronk, Trummy Young, Joe Darensbourg, and the great Danny Barcelona completing the band), which means that Armstrong is in full pop mode, and the songs included ("The Bucket's Got a Hole in It," "La Vie en Rose," "High Society Calypso," "Mack the Knife") showcase that: Armstrong's distinctly scratchy voice takes up at least as much space as, if not more than, his trumpet. Similarly, the remaining six tracks, culled from performances and broadcasts in the 1940s and '60s, have that same radio-friendly smoothness, though the version of "Way Down South in New Orleans" included here, from an NBC broadcast at the Winter Garden Theater in New York in 1947 with Bobby Hackett, Jack Teagarden, Ernie Caceres, Jack Lesberg, Dick Cary, Peanuts Hucko, and George Wettling, is great and brassy and fun in that Dixieland kind of way. All the songs on Storyville Louis Armstrong are clearly performed by talented and professional players, but the poppiness of it will probably disappoint fans wanting to hear the rawness found in Satchmo's earlier horn work.
