The Complete Decca Studio Master Takes 1940-1949

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
The 43 tracks that make up the first part of the The Complete Decca Studio Master Takes 1940-1949 of Louis Armstrong are remarkable not only for the outstanding performances they reflect, but for the many settings Armstrong recorded in during the era. While none of this material will come as a surprise to collectors, those who are starting to check out Armstrong's post-New Orleans period would do themselves a favor in scoping this collection because the Decca years, even more so than his long tenure with Verve, showcase Armstrong at the pinnacle of American popular music, and that that music happens to be jazz is even more revelatory.

The 43 tracks that make up the first part of the The Complete Decca Studio Master Takes 1940-1949 of Louis Armstrong are remarkable not only for the outstanding performances they reflect, but for the many settings Armstrong recorded in during the era. While none of this material will come as a surprise to collectors, those who are starting to check out Armstrong's post-New Orleans period would do themselves a favor in scoping this collection because the Decca years, even more so than his long tenure with Verve, showcase Armstrong at the pinnacle of American popular music, and that that music happens to be jazz is even more revelatory. Here are Satchmo sides with the Mills Brothers, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sy Oliver, George Jenkins, and many others, as well as with the many bands he led during the period, with collaborators such as John Higinbotham, Cozy Cole, George Washington, Shelton Hemphill, Luis Russell, Joe Garland, and dozens of others. The sound on these transfers is 24-bit and the price is right.
