Armstrong recorded intermittently for RCA between 1930 and 1947, often in sessions that were thrown together rather quickly, and there is a slight but tangible drop in joy and energy from the legendary Hot Five and Hot Seven recordings of the mid- to late '20s, but this is still Louis Armstrong in his prime, and saying that these are lesser recordings would be a case of splitting hairs. The fact remains that you can only be the first one in the water once, and Armstrong's recorded ...
