Description
Trumpet great Louis Armstrong relished singing immensely; in fact music historians point out that before he took up the cornet at the New Orleans Waif’s Home he organized a vocal quartet to sing on the street for spare change. In the genius of his phrasing and its supple swing, Armstrong’s singing is truly at one with his trumpet playing. These 17 exceptional tracks include “I’m Confessin’ (That I Love You),” “When You’re Smiling,” “Black and Blue,” “La Vie en Rose,” “Summertime” (with Ella Fitzgerald), “Memories of You,” “Jelly Roll Blues,” “Do You Know What it Means to Miss New Orleans?” and “Old Rockin’ Chair.”

“It seems to be one of the 20th century’s greatest paradoxes: how could someone with an untrained voice, a limited range, and a gravelly quality have such a profound effect on the course of American jazz and popular singing? Bing Crosby said that Louis is the beginning and the end of music in America.”—Stanley Crouch, NPR Profile
